running 15 years!

The Ridge to River trail race captures the joy of trail running by providing a challenging, yet rewarding course for all runners. Enjoy a mix of road and rolling single-track which leads you up to ridges and overlooks then back down for a fast, flat section along the river trail. This event has been a community favorite for many years and we look forward highlighting such a beautiful park.

Post race coffee bar, breakfast, and prizes to follow.

10 Miler
The 10 Mile course encompasses a little something for everyone. The first four miles are truly a woodsman's dream as the course takes the runner through deep woods and prime single track. The end of the fourth mile culminates in the arrival of the river trail and the first hydration station. The river trail is both fast and flat. The river trail follows the Guyandotte River for 2.5 miles and will exit to the second aid station. The final 3.5 miles is primarily flat with only one challenging hill to traverse. Once uphill, breathtaking scenery awaits, as the trail overlooks the valley portion of Barboursville Park. There is one remaining hydration station at mile 8.5. The last eight tenths of a mile are downhill to the finish.

4 Miler
The course for the 4 Miler will be the first 4 miles of the 10 miler. As a warning to prospective runners, the first eight tenths of a mile is uphill and can prove challenging but rewarding. There is no hydration station on the 4 mile course.

There are several places to spectate this event and plenty of opportunity to see your runner. However, we ask that you only park in designated parking areas within the park.
