The Get Outside 8-Hour is at Windsor Castle Park in Smithfield, VA. It's a companion race to the Windsor Castle 10-Hour hosted in June and designed as a chance for you to "Get Outside" rather than stay indoors and cyber shop or continually nibble on leftover Thanksgiving dinner items :-). The days after Thanksgiving are a time where those in the sports and outdoor groups are encouraging people to get outside, stretch your legs, and enjoy nature rather than worry about battling shoppers indoors as well as online.
This is your chance to get in a nice long run or walk on an approximately 3 mile trail. The final distance will be posted once the course details are complete, along with the elevation gain (estimated at 150 feet each loop).
The run is hosted through "It's Just A Training Run" and so feel free to come out and race the course to see how many miles you can get or just enjoy time on your feet and getting some nice miles walking and running along with about 99 others.
This is a low-key event, however laps will be counted and we'll be keeping track of your miles so go for it!. We'll have awards for the top finishers, along with a home-made finisher's medal for all runners.
