Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Half Marathon

About

The is the third year of this totally ridiculous half marathon. We are switching things up a bit and moving the race to a morning start, instead of the afternoon. The Whiskey Tango Foxtrot trail half marathon will again be 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 course has two river crossings ranging from 6 inches deep if there has been very little rain to 2.5 feet deep with a lot of rain (anything over that height and we have an alternate course). At the finish, we will have some great beer and an awesome finishers medal to show off when people ask you “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot were you thinking racing a trail half marathon that crosses a creek at the end of February?!”

This race is race number 1 in the Trivium Medal Series.  If you complete all 5 races you will receive a finishers medal as well!  All six medals will fit together to make one giant Trivium Medal! New medal design coming for 2018!

    Half Marathon Course

    The course starts out with a short section on road to allow runners to spread out. The rest of the course consists of hiking trail terrain.  While the majority of the trail is wide and extremely well maintained, there are some spots that are not used often and will have a rougher terrain to them.

    Waterstop 1: Mile 3.1 – water/gatorade
    Watersrop 2: Mile 4.8 – water/gel
    Waterstop 3: Mile 8.3 – water/gel
    Waterstop 4: Mile 9.9 – water/gatorade
    Note: If there are heavy rains leading up to the event and the stream crossing is closed, a three loop alternative course will be ready to go.
