Sorry, registration has ended.

This event has been around since 1979. Larry Miller has been the race director for a couple of decades. His enthusiasm for laying out challenging cross country courses has never wavered, and he always has something new up his sleeve. The running community is certain that Larry lays awake at night thinking of new twists for the Fall Series courses. There have been hay bale jumps, fence climbing, culvert tunnels and more. And because of all of this, we all have stories to pass along. Thank you, Larry! In 2017, Larry Miller, Pat Lockhart, Kirk Brown and Stewart Cooper are teaming up as co-race directors. They will bring the best of the best for the Fall Series.
