WONDERLAND MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE At Ace Adventure Resort
Join ACE Adventure Resort for the Wonderland Mountain Challenge, a demanding trail run through the beautiful mountains in West Virginia on Memorial Day weekend. Choose between a half-marathon, 10K run, or a 5-mile walk. These distinctive race routes will take racers through the New River Gorge past scenic rock outcrops, cascading streams and abandoned coal mines. After grabbing your medal at the finish line a burrito buffet awaits to tame the appetite you have developed. Cash prizes will be awarded to top finishers, plus you get bragging rights for tackling this amazing race on May 29th, 2021.Plus, take advantage of the FREE onsite shower houses after the race!!THREE RACE DISTANCES TO CHOOSE FROM!
Wonderland Mountain Challenge features three races including a half marathon, 10K run & 5-mile mountain hike. Both the half marathon & the 10K run follow the same route with the 10K ending at the 6.2-mile mark. The route will take racers up Wonderland Mountain from the resort center by Wonderland Waterpark. This initial climb gains roughly 250 feet in a mile before contouring for the next 2 miles through a beautiful hardwood forest. The course continues in this fashion with short sections of elevation change until the route finds a terrain bench to follow for a longer distance. You will love the views into the New River Gorge overlooking the town of Thurmond.REGISTRATION FEES
