The 3rd Annual RARE CrossFit 5 Mile Trail Run – ARE YOU FIT OR RARE FIT?

What is it?
The RARE CrossFit 5 Mile Trail Run (RCX5TR  III) has the same focus as all of the our events: good, friendly, and fun competition. This is the third year that we are offering this type of event,if you thought last year was fun and tough, this year will be tougher and just as fun!
We offer awesome racing PLUS a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to our amazing sponsors, we offer light free food plus beer (no worries – non-alcoholic beverages will be offered as well). And what better place to enjoy these perks than on “the beach” of the Rappahannock! Spectators will have the option to take advantage of all the adventure the river has to offer since the race site is located right on the premises of the Virginia Outdoor Center (V.O.C.). Next to tubing, canoeing and kayaking, the center offers a rock climbing wall for beginners and experts.
Competitors will all run the same distance – an APPROXIMATE 5 mile course. Due to the fact that these are off-road events, the distances are not certified to be 5 miles. We use calibrated cycling computers to measure the course. In addition, your times will vary a great deal from running on the road, since the course has some good ups and downs and is tight and windy in places – but that’s not all!!! Think you are in top notch shape, this race isn’t your average 5 mile run. In addition to the varying terrain, we have added other physical challenges to this race. In order to finish you must complete these challenges at each mile marker. Do you have what it takes to complete The RARE 5 Mile Trail Run…we shall see!!!
