"This year the biggest challenge is the trail is kinda gone. It kinda got chewed up by the storm. So, I am able to use part of the trail but everything else is going to be a new part," Race Director, Eve Graves says.
And those new parts will be clearly marked, along with spots you should avoid.
"We'll have to flag this one with a lot of pink. So people see it and don't fall on it," Graves says.
Normally the event is capped at one hundred people, but this year they are going beyond.
"I'm thinking we'll maybe get 140-150 tops. I think we are right around 120-125 right now," Graves says.
All of the proceeds for the 5k race go toward repairing trails at the park. That money has been used to build bridges, and other maintenance around the park.
"I think I've raised probably between fifteen to eighteen thousand throughout the last six years," Graves says.
Graves says that despite the trail being closed.. races will still get the full experience of Pattison State Park.
"They will get over by the large falls which we don't usually do. Get to go through the tunnel which is kinda fun unless you're tall and have to duck. They get to see part of the ski trail. They will get to see part of camp ground loop, hopefully the campers will be cheering for them. And it's actually flatter than it used to be," Graves says.
Registration online for the race closes on Thursday, but you can still register the day of the race on Sunday from 8:30-9:30am.
The race starts at 10am.
