Race start: 10:00 a.m.
Distance: ~4.5 kilometers (3 miles); No minimum pace



The course is shorter this year due to a cross country meet at GlenOak High School which we were not informed of in advance, despite frequent communication with parties involved. Total distance is 4.5K, which is about 3 miles.

Gervasi staff will direct you to the parking area in the front of the property. Park as instruction and follow the path to the Crush House. 

Early Packet Pickup:
Friday, October 1st from 4 pm to 6 pm at the Still House front porch. Please pick up early for you and your friends.

Race Day Pickup:
From 8:30 am to 10:00 am in the parking lot near the Crush House.


Vintage wine glasses from previous years will be for sale at Early Pickup Only.

Gervasi is a pet-free environment, however, pets are permitted on the racecourse. Please respect our hosts’ policy and refrain from walking your pet around the Gervasi grounds.

Strollers are permitted. We advise using a stroller / jogging stroller with larger wheels because of the uneven surface of the trail. Strollers should start at the back.

Aid Stations:

There is a water stop about half way through.

Over all first, second and third place male and female will receive a gift certificate and a wine glass. Wine glasses will be awarded to the first three female and male finishers in each age group. Awards will be announced beginning at 11:00. Please note: Awards will not be mailed. You must be present to collect your award.
