RUN BIG LAND Toughness Groove Trail Run
October 1, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm$40
Looking for a trail run that benefits Veterans and First Responders that serve our communities? You’ve found it! RUN BIG LAND Toughness GROOVE 10.7K Trail Run is a timed, 10.7K (see what we did there?!) trail race in Montross, Virginia. Proceeds benefit the 501c3 nonprofit 10-7 at Big Land! Beginning at the old “Self Homestead’s” back farm field, meandering through farmland and forest, and ends right back where you started! Only want to run a 5K? You can do that too! One loop of our course will bring you in right at 5.35K. You will follow forested cut trails, forested roads and experience some challenging up and down hills for a 1,400 feet in elevation gain. Trail shoes are definitely recommended and want to bring those trail poles? Not a bad idea. Be prepared for the best top male and female finisher awards! But if you aren’t them, you’re going to get some prizes too! And don’t forget the “Dirty Beaver Award” mud never looked so good and the most mud and dirt gets “The Dirty Beaver Award”. Since we are the best race ever and we have Miss. Biggy Beaver, look for places to take selfies (old toilet bend, the saw mill and more), and the best part…She leaves swag all over the place! Don’t forget that green(money)! We plan to have some local food trucks, drinks, 10-7 at Big Land SWAG and Toughness Groove SWAG for purchase. This is our first annual trail run! We are so happy you will be joining us! Our test trail run was a success in early March and we hope we have worked out all the kinks to make this an amazing experience for everyone involved! 100% of the proceeds go to projects at 10-7 at Big Land (www.ten7bigland.com) benefiting the making of memories and moments for our veterans and first responders and those that have served our nation’s communities. For example, building an ADA compliant cabin for our disabled members. https://runsignup.com/Race/VA/Montross/RUNBIGLANDToughnessGROOVETrailRun
