After several years of hosting the area’s premiere 5K/10K trail race, Test The Watters is going ultra in 2020 with the addition of 50K and 25K distances. The gorgeous Watters Smith Memorial State Park in Lost Creek, West Virginia, is home to some of the region's top single track running and mountain bike trails. Fill your thirst for ultra while getting a taste of pioneer history – log cabins, frontier homes, aging barns, and mystic wells. Come Test the Watters! 

Proceeds from this event benefit United Way of Harrison County WV. Check out our website at

The course winds through mostly wooded, single track trails of the idyllic Watters Smith State Park. Several miles low-technical trails are great for beginners yet still challenging for experts due to their rolling nature and several short, steep climbs. In dry periods road shoes are suitable on this course.
