ABOUT THIS EVENT
Welcome to the 2nd Annual Bedford Rotary Trails to Ales 5K/2K Trail Run! It is intended to be a low-key trail race with a reasonable entry fee and lots of extras. You can choose to run or walk the 5K or the shorter 2K course. The entry fee is the same for both distances. Although you will select a distance during registration, you can decide to switch to either the long course or the short course during the race up until the fork in the trail. Seriously, there will be a giant fork!
Both races start at 6:30pm on the soccer field, just down the hill from the warming hut. Once the race starts, the Craft Beer Garden opens up. Non-runners and walkers can buy tickets for $15.00. A ticket allows you to taste the beers, meads, wines and ciders from multiple local breweries. We encourage you to arrive early to take advantage of the vendor booths, lawn games and DJ on site.
We will not be having a traditional awards ceremony other than for the top finishers in each race. For everyone else, simply check the results to see if you are the top three in your age division. If you are, mosey on over to the awards table to pick up your prize.
Your entry also includes a food ticket. We will provide freshly-cooked hamburgers with all the fixings as well as side dishes, desserts and drinks donated by local vendors from the Bedford area.
