The Bobcat Trail Challenge is an opportunity to challenge yourself and push your limits as you attempt to run as far as you can in the allotted time. The loop format is ideal for those looking to get into longer distance races, trail races, or those looking to run farther than they ever have before. Or race as a relay team and push your teammates to cover some serious distance! Throughout the day there will be food available for spectators and race crews, live music, and a celebratory atmosphere as we look forward to the end of fall and the start of winter!
