Pfalz Point Trail Challenge

Pfalz Point Trail Challenge 10-mile Benefit Run
August 29, 2021
Spring Farm Trailhead

Pfalz Point Trail Challenge will be held August 29, 2021, one month earlier than our usual late September date. It is our sincere hope that we’ll be able to hold an in-person race on August 29th. However, if that’s not possible the race will be virtual with an option to run the marked course on your own during a one-week period. Stay tuned for more information.

Be safe!

About the Event
