WhenAugust 4, 2018 - 7:30 AM
The 8th Annual KT 50K/25K/10K trail run has something for everyone. It is one of the only one way trail runs around, if not the only one in the Tri-State. The first 7 year races we have had runners from over 20 different states. The KT runs through 3 counties in WV, which many parts are old bison and Indian trails. It began in 1962 from one scouts dream of connecting these trails and creating a journey, it has been maintained by the scouts since. This race has a variety of terrain for every trail runner, it is mainly made up of 26 miles of single track trails and around 5 miles of country dirt roads. The 50k race will be ran in reverse direction from Fraziers bottom to Ona, WV and finish at the boyscout camp arrowhead. The 25K/10K will start near the bridge at Linville Drive, just off of Rt.60 and will run just under a mile until the trail head of the KT and end at the Boyscout Camp Arrowhead. With the exception of public roads, the trail is located in its entirety on private property and without the cooperation of these land owners there would be no Kanawha Trace. All proceeds go to the maintence and enhancement of the KT. So come enjoy the ridges, meadows, creeks, waterfalls, tunnels, and much more. Experience the past and conquer the future.
