The Creek is about to get wicked with this new iteration! Take your chances with the 8 mile course once, twice (25k), or four times (50k).
Killer Creek will take place on October 31st 2020. These trails are perfect for those interested in getting their first ultra finish, or for the experienced distance runner to set a new PR as these trails move fast. If you’re looking to take the next step up from a 5k or a half, check out the 8 mile or 25k option. These distances will challenge you and help you build your training to continue to push forward to even farther distances.
We want to see you expand your base as a runner and push yourself to the next level when you are ready. Our races are designed to give you that chance, and we are here to help you at each step. As such, we will be at the Start/Finish line (crew corner as well) to give you support and encouragement the whole day. Grab your friends, bring your family, and have them set up a tent for you at the Crew Corner and we’ll stop by and make sure you’re pushing through to the end!
Speaking of Crew Corner: At the Start/Finish line, we will be having a tent city for runners to set up. Have your gear waiting for you every 8 miles just in case you need a new shirt, a fresh pair of socks, or just a hug from a friend or loved one to remind you that you signed up for this and to get back out there and finish it. There will be another aid station out on the course, but this will be the most well stocked one, and it also may have some trick-or-treat fun for those hanging back and cheering runners on!
We want runners of all levels at this race to feel like they have a shot of starting and finishing. If you have a questions about which distance you should be signing up for reach out to us before registering. We’ll be happy to talk to you about your current level of experience and what you may need to do to step up to that next rung.
All Runners who sign up for the 8 mile or 25k will receive a race T-Shirt.
All Runners who sign up for the 50k will receive a race Sweatshirt.
If you’d like to purchase the one not included with your registration, we will have that option on the registration page, or if you feel lucky, you can see what we have left over on race day and buy it from us then.
All Finishers will receive a bomb-ass medal we will be displaying soon when we have the mock-ups completed!
There will be awards for the top 3 male and female runners (no age groups). We have something wicked and whimsical planned for this, and will announce more later when the concept is hammered out.
