The CATHalf is a 13.3 mile trail race that takes place on the sweet single-track trails of The Miller School of Albemarle on Saturday, October 28th, 2017, at 8 am.
The Miller School’s 1,600-acre campus boasts an extensive and growing trail system that includes rolling wooded single-track, climbs through piney forests and open fields, and a tough but fun finish! Prizes will be awarded to top finishers and, of course, there will be a fun and festive party at the race finish! The trails are maintained by students on the Miller School of Albermarle Endurance Team and we organize this race together with the MSA Endurance Team coach, Andy Guptill.
The free CATHalf Training Program helps prepare all interested trail runners — including those new to trail running that have never run long distances before — to run the CATHalf. Check out our Facebook Group page for locations and start times of the weekly group runs and workouts on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
