hat creek trail race
Hat Creek Trail Race is a timed event on a loop course. Whether participating as a solo runner or part of a 24 hour relay team, the object is the same…complete as many loops as humanly possible within the time given, while having as much fun as you can.
Recently, Trail Runner magazine listed Lynchburg as one of the top trail towns in America, and for good reason. The Lynchburg area offers hundreds of miles of single-track, jeep roads, and greenways, not to mention the Appalachian Trail. And while it is easy to find a trail or road race in the area almost any weekend of the year, there was one thing missing…a 24 hour relay!
24 Hours of Hat Creek will take place at the Hat Creek Camps and Conferences on May 20th and 21st. For those interested in testing themselves against the course and the clock there are solo races of 6, 12, and 24 hours. For those who want to take on the challenge, but would like to share the load with their fellow trail runners, there are 24 hour relay options.
