We give away 68 medals to our top runners! You're extreme, YOU deserve it!
1st place medals for Male and Female: Best time overall
1st & 2nd & 3rd place medals for Male and Female: For the fastest finishers in each age division.
1st & 2nd place medals for Extreme Teams: Top 6 finishers only in each winning team receive medals.
Disqualifying runners: To keep the integrity of our 5K, we have made a decision to disqualify those that do not attempt an obstacle. This only means you will not receive a medal. Our medals are given for best running times and not completing obstacles will compromise that time. You will be marked with an X to notify us of this and it will ensure that our competing runners times will medal properly. Time penalties will be acquired. No worries to those who love the challenge and are not concerned about their time, continue on and have a blast while attempting all that you can!
Proceeds from this race will be donated to the White Gravel Mines Productions to provide free ministry events.
These include The Cavern of Choices, The Christmas Cave, and The Easter Cave!
Welcome Extreme Runners!
You never know what you'll get with Ohio weather, be prepared for anything! In the 5K course category, we'll just stick with EXTREME :)
Please recheck your wave time that you signed up for to ensure you arrive on time.
If you are familiar with our 5K location, arrive a MINIMUM of 30 minutes before.
If you have not been to the Mines, allow more time due to possible GPS issues.
Upon arrival, find Pre-Registration tent to:
pick up your leg strap timing chip
get free t-shirt (for those who pre-registered)
A few things to know:
Headlamps are optional, but BUGSPRAY is highly advised. Ticks/chiggers are prominent and hopefully you will be going too fast for them to stick, but safety first!
The course has a few updates. The main change is that there is MORE MUD. As always, the natural terrain and elevation changes are the biggest challenges. Plus, the newer trail has been a nice addition especially for those who want to get ahead of the pack.
There are a few minor additions and subtractions to the obstacles, but nothing new is terribly hard to discuss.
Remember: Sometimes the people in front of you are an obstacle. Be kind but figure out a way to not let them slow you down. Be kind but push through. If you aren’t competing, let those that are around you.
You will wade through the Chilly Jordan inside the mines at the beginning of the course. You will swim through the pond (a rope and lifeguard will be there), and you WILL be muddy at the end. Choose your shoes wisely. Also, many have found gloves are helpful with the rope assisted areas.
There will be a tent for changing clothes.
Bring an EpiPen if that applies to you.
There are volunteers on 4-wheelers and on foot all along the course to help.
Brother's All-American BBQ will be serving Acai bowls and Chicken/Steak Protein bowls at our EXREME Trail Run. These guys know how to cook! Be sure to check them out after you compete!
Again, we love our runners! We appreciate your enthusiasm and determination to push yourselves to complete our course. We are here for you and hope you have an EXTREMELY wild time!
Photos of runners will be posted to Facebook @ White Gravel Mines!
