We’re just a few weeks away from this amazing combination of trail races at DuPont Forest State Park on Saturday, October 1st (the 10k) and Sunday, October 2nd (the 50k). There’s no better place in Western North Carolina for trail running than DuPont Forest and early October is the perfect time for great weather and awesome scenery.
