Date & Time- Trail Running

Friday, September 18, 2020

Through

Sunday, October 18, 2020

Because it is a virtual event, there is no fixed start time. Runners are able to run their event any time, anywhere!

 

Camping

No camping this year! Info below is from 2019.

There will be two camping areas, one quiet and one closer to the start finish that might be more lively. These camping areas are not PVSP’s typical camping areas and have been approved just for this event. Therefore there will be no campfires allowed in the camping area, but you can use your propane stove, no problem. (We’ll have central fire area) The camping areas are within walking distance to bathrooms with running water and flush toilets. Camping will open Friday at 4pm, all campers must arrive before 7pm. Camping can be purchased at registration checkout for $10 per vehicle.
