The Run Wild 24 hour Trail Run and Music Festival is a 24, 12 or 6 hour timed event, so you can run, walk, eat and sleep as much as you would like. Your run is measured on miles traveled rather than on your finishing time. The course will be on six miles of gorgeous, fall-colored single-track trail divided into two 3 mile loops with course timing and live results, a plentiful aid station, camping, food trucks and a sound stage with amazing live local bands, all in the race epicenter at the end of each loop. You can choose to do this solo or organize a team with as many people as you would like, dividing up the hours and miles, while your peeps enjoy the live music. Teams can also compete in a Team Theme Competition and wear your wildest crazy outfits or support your own individual causes and win some fun takeaways.
Proceeds benefit Mad Anthony Children’s Hope House serving families by saving them considerable time, energy and dollars in travel and overnight lodging while their children undergo lifesaving treatments at area hospitals.The Hope House offers families who would otherwise sleep in cars and hospital lobbies a safe haven at a donation of $10 per day – and no family is turned away for the inability to pay. Believe it or not, many families are unable to afford even this small donation, so this event truly helps people in need.
Sign up to raise donations from friends and family as PLEDGES BY THE MILE and do even more to help out with this great cause! For those raising at least $200 in donations, you will be refunded $25 from your race registration fee. (Which you can choose to donate back to the Children’s Hope House, if you choose.)
