Experience the Kanawha State Forest in the middle of winter for the 13th running of Frozen Sasquatch 25k/50k. The race is located just south of Charleston, West Virginia and is the first WVMTR race of the year.
Beginning with a steady incline to the top of the mountain, the course features mostly single track trails through the gorgeous West Virginia hills. Designed as a two loop course, the usual snow covered forest reveals the bright winter sun during the 2nd loop. Those running the 50k distance will make two trips around the 25k loop. Beards, pony tails, and eye lashes are often covered in icicles and snow after this wintry event. Be sure to watch for Sasquatch lurking in the woods!

Course Information:

The Frozen Sasquatch Trail Run is a two loop course for the 50k runners and one loop for the 25k runners. There are four aid stations on each loop. At the halfway point 50k runners will be going through the parking lot at the Start, so if you need to get into or drop something off at your vehicle you can. There will also be a location at this point for drop bags.
