The Robin Ames Memorial Races are a series of trail events in Coopers Rock State Park in West Virginia.  This race is a celebration of life and who Robin was as a person.  There are distances for any skill level.  

There are 4 distances.  You have the ability to participate in person, we would absolutely love to see you and are planning on making this a destination race, but if you cannot attend there is a virtual option as well.  Just submit your run between October 1st and October 30th in any of the distances, and we will put a leader board together (screen shot from Garmin, Strava, or other digital tracking).
