Saturday, April 16, 2016, 7:00 am

Coopers Rock State Forest, West Virginia

(Exit 15 off of I-68, 20 minutes east of Morgantown)

50K: Celebrate Spring time in West Virginia by running the beautiful trails of Coopers Rock State Forest! This rocky and rugged 50 km course will take you through awe inspiring rock formations and dazzling views of the Cheat Canyon! You will run nearly every trail in the forest, including an out-and-back to Cheat Lake and an out-and-back to the Raven Rock overlook. This is a scenic, but difficult course over rough trails with plenty of elevation gain and loss. Carrying a water bottle is mandatory.

Half Marathon: The Half Marathon is a shortened version of the 50 km course that forgoes some of the most difficult trails, but still offers a serious challenge! There’s plenty of elevation gain and loss to contend with on this trail run, and a few rocky sections as well. There are no out-and-backs in the Half Marathon. Carrying a water bottle is also mandatory for this course.
