Great Trek

Races for Everyone

Take your pick – run a Half Marathon, 10KM, 5KM or complete all three for the RUNVAN® Hat-trick! Previously known as the Fall Classic, this event is known for its festive atmosphere and we’re excited to continue the vibes with this year’s Great Trek Virtual Race! Run your Virtual Race safely anytime between October 16-31, or join us for in-person races Saturday, October 23. Spots are limited.

Please note that traditional services like gear check, race day package pickup, water stations on-course, and entertainment will still be limited or removed. While we hope restrictions will remain lifted, our local non-profit is being cautious with our return and respectful of volunteers who may not want to be in close contact to runners after the long COVID-19 shutdowns. The in-person race will include an official Start Line, Finish Line, timing and race results.

Half Marathon start at 8:30am, the 10KM starts at 10:30am, and the 5KM starts at noon.
