Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Half Marathon


The is the second year of this totally ridiculous half marathon. The Whiskey Tango Foxtrot trail half marathon is the second race in the Trivium Running Series. This two loop course shows off some of the great trails (including Foxtrot Trail) at Northeast Park. The afternoon start will give you a chance to relax and enjoy the morning before tackling 13.1 miles in the afternoon. At the finish, we will have some great beer and an awesome finishers medal to show people when they ask you “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot were you thinking racing a trail half marathon that crosses a creek at the end of February?!”
