About the event

That's right! WTF is back again!

For those of you that did not make it previous years, or are unaware of what WTF is... Here are the basics:

Waxhaw Trail Fest will take place on Saturday May 6th. This is a team event, that will run relay style on 3 different trail legs setup at Cuthbertson High School in Waxhaw NC. The loops all start and stop at the WTF village where you and your fellow PAX can relax and enjoy some 2nd F until your next leg.  The race is complete when each member of your team runs each loop once, totaling approx 12 miles per runner. With a 6:30am starting line time, I would expect the final runners to be coming in around 12 noon, so plan accordingly. Arrive at least 30 min early! This may be the first time meeting your teammates, and you want to be prepared before the 6:30 start.

This year, we have made a few changes. We have moved our location to Cuthbertson to provide more space, and more trails for better loops...you should even plan for a creek crossing or 2!  We have gone official and brought in Apex Promos to help with the course and race setup, to provide a much better event. We have created a pretty badass team trophy for annual bragging rights. New first place medals... and by popular demand we are adding a WTF hoodie for this year's event.

Registration is $12 + service fee- This will include your race, food, snacks and hydration throughout the event. If you are interested in T-shirt or Hoodie it will be an additional charge.

Awards given to top overall team

Each person will register as an individual with best estimated 5k road pace. Race directors will assign all runners to evenly matched teams of 3. Every registered runner will get an email with updated Team information prior to the event, in addition to packet pickup information for the morning of the event.

In the village we will provide music, coffee,  hydration, a BBQ grill setup with a selection of food, including sandwiches, chicken, burgers, and bacon and eggs. Please bring your own chairs and a team canopy if desired. Any team snacks or preferred drinks are up to each team.

All extra money raised will be donated to F3 Waxhaw partner in support of our fallen brother Ex-lax.

Spread the word. Open to all. Last year was a great event, and this year is shaping up to be even better!
