Medoc Trail Races



I just wanted to share some information with you about a trail marathon and 10-miler tucked away in remote eastern North Carolina at Medoc Mountain State Park.  The race is in it's third year.


Date:  Oct 16th 2010






The Legend of Medoc:



The Medoc trail event is comprised of two different  races. All runners will share the same start and finish area, and will  run on the same course. This event is located at Medoc Mountain State  Park in Hollister, North Carolina, will challenge runners as they  traverse wooded trails, many of which are single track. Come enjoy the  amazing views while testing your endurance.


After  a brief stint on the park roads to allow runners to spread out, the  remainder of the race takes place on the trails through a series of  loops. Runners will then enjoy fantastic views as they run close to  nature, passing over and beside waterways, up and down hills, and if you  are very lucky you may even see Medoc  himself. Just be careful not to make him angry and never give him  food.

8:15 am Medoc Marathon: Like  all marathons, the Medoc Marathon will total 26.2 miles, taking in three  loops of the park. Finishers of the marathon will receive a nice heavy  unique race medal, long sleeve shirt, other race amenities including  well supported aide stations, and food on the course and at the finish.


This is not a course you  will set a PR on, so come prepared for a challenge! Don't let the loop  course keep you away. This course allows for great support by the  race staff, and does not feel repetitive. To be honest, when  you're at mile 20 with tired legs, being familiar with the terrain, and  having volunteers that know you by name is a big perk.

8:30 am Medoc 10-Miler: If a full marathon  sounds like too much for you, you are invited to do the Medoc 10-Miler.  We expect to see both aggressive racers looking for an age group  victory, and first timers in this event. This race will fill up,  so we encourage runners to enter early.


Finishers  are entitled to all of the race benefits as the Marathon, which include a  long sleeve shirt, a well supported course, and post race food. They  will receive a finishers medal that is unique to the 10-mile event. This  is a great race introduction to trail racing. Encourage your friends to  try the 10-miler, and prove to them you are not as crazy as people  think you are. This race is scheduled to start at 8:30 am, to allow a  clear trail for runners.
