Saturday – June 1st, 2013
The NTN Twin Peaks Train Run is set for Saturday June 1st, 2013 this year. Both the 1/2 marathon and 5K races start at high noon at the South Marquette Trailhead located off or HWY 553. . This is the fourth year for the Twin Peaks Challenge and the event continues to grow and evolve.
The grassroots race is as unique as it is challenging. Tibetan prayer flags fly above the starting line and each one of the summits that the half marathoners climb has a cowbell that must be rung to avoid disqualification. If you are new to trail running or would like something a little less challenging then consider the 5KM course and its traverse along the Carp River Valley. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers in the half marathon and 5KM Runs. As usual, low cost, minimal SWAG, maximum elevation.
Online Registration closes Thursday, May 30th at 9AM. Day of registration available from 9AM to 10:30AM. Packet pickup will be at the trail Saturday morning 9AM through 11:30AM.
