We will have prizes for the top 3 finishers for male/female in the half marathon and the top 3 finishers of the 10K.  In addition, we will have prizes for those who place top 3 in their age groups for both races.  All prizes will be available onsite to pick up at our award table (we do not mail prizes home).  Please note we will NOT have an award ceremony.  We feel those are boring and hurt the post-race party atmosphere.  After all, you’re in the Canaan Valley and will have just completed an awesome event.  We feel it would be wrong for us to pause the celebration.

The good news is our start,  and parking is all located at the base of the Canaan Valley Ski Resort. We will have ample parking as well as an amazing venue for our start and finish festivities. More info coming soon! 

All participants will receive a finisher medal,

1 LOCAL brew (must be 21 or older), post-race snacks and awesome live music at the finish area. Due to West Virginia State Law, we are unable to serve alcohol until 10 am, so please plan on sticking around for the after-party.  Half Marathon participants will all receive one of our great Hoodies and 10k participants will all receive an awesome Boco Gear Technical Trucker Cap.  

The course will be stocked with 8 water stops and 4 of them will have Gatorade. 

We encourage you to pick up your registration before race day as we plan on having an early morning start.  So yes, plan on staying with us here in Tucker County, WV.   After all, why wouldn’t you? It’s pretty amazing here! Friday Night's Packet Pick Up will be held in Davis from  6-9 pm. Saturday's Packet Pickup will be held in Thomas from 5-9 pm. Sunday we will be offering Race Day Packet Pickup from 6:00 am until 7:30 am at the base of  Canaan Valley Ski Resort.  For more details about packet pick up and the weekend's events please click this LINK

A medical team will be onsite for any hiccups that happen. 13.1 miles is a long way, so train well and listen to your body on race day, please!
