The Insane Terrain Road Race is fundraiser for the Elkin Valley Trails Association, specifically for the construction of bridges over Big Elkin Creek. The bridges will create a continuous trail from Elkin Municipal Park to Stone Mountain State Park. The race course starts at the edge of downtown Elkin. After exiting downtown it goes up & down steep hills, taking you through nice, tree-lined neighborhoods. No sherpas are needed and the leaves will look nice (if exertion blindness hasn't set in).
8:00am: 5k start. 8:45am: 10k start. 11:45am: Awards.Beer Garden for those 21 & up. Fun time for those that show up. Walkers are welcome in both events. And yes, we are aware that it is ironic to have a road race for a trail fundraiser. Maybe that won't be an issue once the bridges are built.
5k: $25.00 by Oct 12, $30 after Oct 12; 10k: $35.00 by Oct 12, $40 after Oct 12
