The East Fork Backpack Trail Run is where the series all began.

The 5.6 mile race will have handicap starts as in the past. This classic race will remain relatively unchanged from previous years. The unique aspect of this race is the handicapped start. All runners will receive a handicap based on Age, Sex, and previous performance in the series. The object is that everyone will have an equal chance at finishing first, and it will be a true chase to the finish. As the name states, the race will take place on the well-established Backpack Trail, at East Fork Lake State Park. The 5.4 mile course is densely wooded, and might give runners the feeling that they are on the Appalachian Trail. The course reverses direction each year. The 10.8 mile (two loop) race will have a mass start with no handicaps. Both events are scored towards the Dirty Dozen Awards. In the shorter handicapped race your actual finish position determines your placement for the Backpack Trail Run scoring. However, your actual running time, not your handicapped finish place, is used to determine your place among the Dirtiest Dozen.

You Must Pre-register by Monday, July 14, 2014 for the handicapped event.

$10 pre-registration

Race day registration will be available for the 10.8 mile race only. $15 fee will apply.
