4 MILE night race starts at Dusk, so bring your headlamp! There will be glow sticks along the trail to help guide your way.
Running our trails at night will be the most fun you ever had at an OCR! Every sense in your body will be heightened, every obstacle will pose a greater challenge. In near pitch dark it takes guts to tackle our mud pools, tunnels, and steep ravines. After the finish line, there is no better way to end the night than with a great cook out, log pyramid bonfire, and beer!
Bring a tent and camp with us overnight!
