Join us for the final run party as we train for Lake Vian Hilltop Run, coming 3/4/2023.  Train and make sure you make the cutoff before committing to a distance.

Changing courses again to keep things interesting.  This looped course is small on distance, but big on adventure.  Paved and dirt trails circle around Lake Vian, leading you through forest and around boulders until you reach the Hilltop. Then journey downward and around to the finish area.  6 hour cutoff for all distances.  This will be plenty of time for the 5k-ers and Half-Marathoners.  Marathoners and 50k will have to push to make the cutoff. Each loop you complete, you will write down the time (for example, 8:25am, 8:51am…) next to your name on the leaderboard. The race on 3/4/2023 will be chip timed to maximize your run/walk time.

Snacks and drinks are provided at the aid station at the end of each loop. This is a cupless event. So remember to bring your own water bottle or cup. As this is a free event, if you would like to contribute to the snack pool, you're welcome to bring pre-packaged extra of whatever you normally fuel with. 

Sign up before race day to be eligible for prizes. Must participate and be present to win.

Awards for top 3 in each category. Yes, it is just a training run, but hey, you have to simulate race day as much as possible, right?  I like to keep it competitive too, even if it is only a training run. That's how we make each other stronger.

SHIRTS! You asked about shirts. We're now taking shirt orders. Hilltop Training is still free, but if you would like a shirt, it can be added on for $19.95. Shirts will be available race day. Shirt order deadline to guarantee your shirt is available by training day is 10/30/2022. 

Training check in is from 7am – 8am, and is mandatory in order to participate.   

We are always looking for sponsors and volunteers. Please reach out if you or your organization are interested in being involved in our training events or the race on 3/4/2023. Sign up today as a volunteer for Lake Vian Hilltop Training.

Lake Vian Trail System is a great place to bring the family for a day out while you're running/walking. There are over 10 miles of trail to be explored on foot or bike.  If someone in your crew kayaks, then load up the kayak.  They get to see you every loop and cheer you on. Maybe talk them into doing a loop with you.
