July 4th Marathon (or less)

A fun run round a 6.55 mile loop, giving lots of distance options, with a great bunch of fun people.  The course would be challenging barefoot but is quite possible in VFF or similar.

A $10 donation is suggested at registration.  You'll get much more than that back in enjoyment!

    Fun local race. Reminds me of the races in Ohio. Did 2 loops in vibrams, probably could have gone 1 more but didn't wanted to push it. Definitely try to make the next one.

    Great cross country course and beautiful for barefoot running. Chris, Rob and I did the route completely shoeless yesterday and had a great time. Chris went on to do a second loop!!! I live near VC and hope to run there more with the idea of making it a regular meetup venue eventually. : )

    Only ran 3 of the 4 loops, as it was hot and the course punished my legs more than expected. GREAT low-key, local event. Water, oranges, and bananas at two aid stations on the course were a welcome sight! Thanks to the organizers and thanks to Westchester Road Runners for manning the on-course aid station in the woods.

    A great trail course but I stepped on a piece of metal about mile 5 after jumping off a rock. It cut a slash through my shoe and sock. Luckily only a small cut on my foot but a lot of pain completing the run making it home. I hope it doesn’t turn out to be much :) This was my first race and first 1/2 marathon and i can't wait to do another one ASAP!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
