Tick Ridge Trek 50K/25K/10K Trail Races
February 9, 2019
Please join us for the 6th running of the Tick Ridge Trek Trail Race presented by Progress Bank.. We will have a beautiful runnable course, great participants, and delicious post-race food and beverages. The 10k, 25k and 50K trail races are run through the beautiful rolling hills of Southern Tennessee on well-worn tractor trails through woods and pastures. These scenic and hilly runs will challenge the experienced trail runner and be a great run for the newer trail runner who may not be comfortable with some of the more technical trails.
The race is held on private land just North of Elkton, Tennessee, a few miles from Interstate 65, Exit 6, an easy 60 minute drive from downtown Huntsville. The 10K and 25K will start together at 8:00 AM (50K at 6:00 AM) on Saturday, February 9th. The race will start and finish between two restored log cabins on the banks of a small stream. The course will be well marked and have aid stations at Mile 3.5 of the 10k and miles 4.5, 7.5, 8.0 and 12.5 on the 25k. Complimentary post-race hot food and refreshments will be provided.
Awards will be presented to the top 3 overall male and female finishers and top 3 overall male and female masters (40 and over) finishers for the 10K and 25k races. The top 3 Male and Female finishers of the 50K will also receive awards.
There is no time limit for the 10k, but any 25k participants that reach the 12.5 mile aid station after 4 hours (just under 20 minute mile average) will be transported back to the finish area. See 50K cut offs below.
We will have camping available at the race site Friday night before the race. We will provide port-a-lets, running water, fire pits and firewood. There is also a very good chance that pre-race hot coffee will be available as well. There is no charge, just bring your tent or camper and enjoy the evening under the stars with old friends and new.
All registered runners will receive a sweatshirt . All finishers will receive a Tick Ridge Finisher chili mug.
