About

Please Click here to see our procedure for event modifications for this event

February 23, 2021 Update:  We have moved the event from Yankee Springs to Robinette’s Orchard for the 2021 race.  This will be a two loop half marathon course, and a 1 loop 5 mile course. (maps coming soon)  We are working on updates and event details this week as we transition to the new venue.  THANK YOU so much to Robinette’s for taking us in!!

Some call it Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Half, some call it The Winter Trail Fest Half some just think What The F…..  This race is not for the weak of heart or the cold intolerant. We will be down at Yankee Springs for a winter trail half marathon race and we will be hoping for some of the nastiest conditions possible!  We really want you to earn your WTF Medal and WTF custom hoodie!  The afternoon start will give you a chance to relax and enjoy the morning before tackling 13.1 brutal miles in the afternoon!

Not quite ready for a Half Marathon but still want to race?  There is also a 5 mile option!!

As with all of our races, Trivium is going to give you the best race experience possible with easy to follow trail markings, lots of aid on the course, live results, and unique prizes!
