This is a “Barkley Style” running race. If you have no idea what “Barkley style” means, fear not! In short, the race is one, two, or three 6.5 mile loops (you can decide during the race how far you want to go) on trails within the park.
Each runner will be given a map of the park with the trails and checkpoints marked out for you to navigate the course. At each checkpoint, runners will need to grab one book page matching the number of their race bib. Once runners have secured all of their book pages at each of the checkpoints and made their way through the loop, they must present them to the race officials at the startfinish area before continuing out onto a second or third loop.
2019 Leaf Mountain Foot Race is limited to 100 runners. The registration fee is $50, and if you have a vehicle in the park, you will also be required to have a park pass which may be obtained at any State Park office as an Annual pass ($35) or Daily pass ($7).
