Nail the Rail 9 Miler

Saturday, November 7, 2020

2020 event scheduled


Saturday - NOVEMBER 7, 2020 – 9 AM


Runners attempt to NAIL the RAIL by running the course in 60 minutes or less.  A simple concept.  Start at milepost -0- at the Dick & Willie Passage’s Virginia Avenue Trailhead.  Run to trail Milepost 4.5.  Turn around and run back to milepost -0-.  Runners of all abilities welcome.  Whether you run 50 minutes or an hour and 50 minutes, you accomplish something that a majority of folks cannot.  You run 9 miles!

Registration will open in early 2020.
