About the event
About the race
The Explore Your Limits 5/10k was started in 2005 as the first annual trail run in the Roanoke Valley. Due to the 5k being a great race for people getting into trail running and the challenge of the 10k it has grown to be the largest event in the Roanoke Non Ultra Trail Series (RNUTS). This race is a way to showcase what this park has to offer and the miles of tight and twisty IMBA designed single track trails.
The 5k is a great race to introduce runners to trail running. The race course will take runners through some of the trails and gravel roads of the Explore Park. The 5k is 1/3 trail and 2/3 gravel road and asphalt. The 10k continues on to the single track biking trails for the remainder of the race (a lollipop loop configuration). This is challenging course and a great way to start your racing season. Walkers Welcome.
The 5k course runs on some of the Historic Areas of the park, heading down the Palmer’s Pond Trail, then a left onto the Deer Run Trail, and a clockwise run on the Turkey Scratch Loop, along the River Walk, up the gravel road next to Slone’s Grist Mill and then doing a counter clockwise run of the Farmstead Loop, then running along Journey’s End Trail, and finally, climbing up Old Salem Turnpike (Vomit Hill), and taking a left at the top of the hill and finishing at the Water Tower (near the entrance to the Yellow Trail).
