2014 Old Mountain 5k Trail Race




Saturday January 4, 2014. 10 am start.

SNOW! Yes, the race will go on. Be prepared for ~6" of powdery snow, very cold temperatures, and lots of fun! Dress warm, bring extra clothes, dry socks, etc. Snowshoes, traction devices, etc, are welcome, although the course can be tight and rocky in spots, so snowshoes may be awkward.

Open to all ages. No dogs. No strollers. Headphones strongly discouraged.
