|Notice for 2019|
|The race has been scheduled for Saturday April 20, 2019 (Registration). Charitable donations will be for St. John Rescue and Love City Cooperative Network (LCCN). T-shirts will be sold after the event.|
This trail race on St. John features beautiful views, diverse ecosystems, and challenging single track climbs and descents. The course from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay follows a renowned series of National Park trails that traverse peaks, ridges, ravines, and beaches across the entire island. The total distance is 13.6 miles (Half Marathon+) with an elevation gain of 2,772 feet (more…).
This is a race for experienced trail runners who are inspired by beautiful surroundings to challenge themselves. Runners are expected to be largely self-supported and navigate the course that reaches deep into remote areas with no vehicular access or spotty cell service. Since the course periodically crosses roads, however, there are many opportunities for friends and family to follow runners’ progress across the island and cheer them on.
The race starts at 6am on Saturday, April 20th, 2019 at the National Park Service dock in Cruz Bay. Bib pickup and a mandatory safety meeting will be held the previous night in Cruz Bay.
