Beckley, WV - Beckley Stratton Middle School XC Trail


September 9, 2017 - 5:00 PM




Enjoy the same 5K trail used by local middle school and high school cross country teams. This includes grass trails and some slight wooded areas. There is one catch though. The dead have come back to life and are wandering the trail. Can you complete the race with a zombie herd in chase?
