Boney Mountain Xterra Half Marathon is one tough trail race but the views, the trail, the people and crossing that finish line make the work worth it. Anyone is welcome and the rules are below. You run at your own risk.
One of the best races to start the year off is the Boney Mtn Xterra Half Marathon. It is mostly off road. The trails are beautiful and it is a great way to test you fitness. The actual race is Sunday, Jan. 12.
