Snowy Owl 10 Mile Race Description

Thanks for your interest in the Snowy Owl 10 mile on Sunday, January 7, 2024!

This is a trail race and will be on a combination of trails in beautiful York River State Park. Five miles of the course will be technical single track. About 3/4 mile on the road and the rest will be on dirt fire road trails. The course will feature rocky sections, twisting single track, a boardwalk with beautiful views and fast fire roads. The elevation gain on the course is about 600 feet, some of the rolling terrain will be quite challenging!

This race benefits AWARE (Alliance of Wild Animal Rehabilitators and Educators). Individuals from AWARE will be onsite with owls and fun educational information! (similar to my summer Night Owl race)



The start time will be 9am and plan for cold temperatures! This race is snow or shine, although if weather conditions are dangerous we will have to unfortunately cancel. Deferrals will be issued if necessary to the following year.


There will be 3 aid stations on the course with water and light snacks, like gels and fruit. Hot coffee, cocoa and yummy snacks will be available at the finish. All finishers will receive a cool wooden medal featuring the logo. All registered runners will receive a race logo, winter hat and free entry into the park. Long sleeved T-shirts are available for purchase separately and the deadline to order is December 22, 2023.


Awards will be given to overall top 3 and top 3 in 10 year age groups male/female.

0-1.5 mile Fire road dirt trail (Woodstock Pond/Backbone)

1.5-3.5 mile Single track trail (Marl Ravine)
