SUMMER TRAINING CHECK-in
With your friends!
The Hixon Summer Trail Series offers local runners an opportunity once a month during the summer "test themselves" on our trails. This four mile route provides a unique dipstick check-in on your training. We also hope this is a great opportunity to see your trail friends, push each other, and enjoy a cold beverage of your choice post run.
The run begins at 6:00 p.m. on the third Thursday of "most" Summer month. Check-in will be in the Lower Hixon Forest Parking Lot. Each run will be chip timed. You can choose to sign-up for one of the runs or ALL of them!
$20 for each run or $60 for the ENTIRE SERIES! Registering for the whole series gets you a $20 discount! This goal of this event is not to make money, but to provide an experience to on our amazing trails! The cost associate with the series goes towards permits, timing, and "swag" to make it even more fun. Come join us!
No race day registration. For our prep work and to make sure the experience is best for everyone involved, we ask that you register ahead of time.
To run these fun and unique events, we always need volunteers! If you, or someone you know, is interested in helping make this a great trail experience for others please consider volunteering. There are LOTS of opportunities to serve before, during, and after the event.
Volunteer sign-up coming soon!
Summer series Details
The run covers some of our favorite segments in Lower Hixon! The loop begins with a climb up Vista. While this is 2 miles up hill, there are lots of reprieves and opportunities to set your pace. Additionally, you'll enjoy a few EPIC viewpoints of the city along the way! Then you'll connect to Vista 2 which has some fun switchbacks and a sweet bridge feature. Finally, you'll make your way back to the parking lot by heading downhill and enjoying some technical singletrack. We are debating on alternating the direction of travel each run in the series as well! This is sure to keep it fresh and make each month feel brand new again.
We'd LOVE for you to stick around, chat, connect with friends, and recap your experience!
We will have light snacks and beverages available at each run to help you refuel and enjoy your time with trail friends.
