April 1st Course Update: Ohio Outside LLC, proud promoters of the Salt Fork Spring Challenge, have re-routed the course for the Spring of 2016 and added an extra 6,500 feet of climbing along with a quarter mile swim section that crosses a portion of the Salt Fork lake.
This was not a planned re-route of the course, but necessary as a result of the increasing population in the groundhog village that has left thousands of holes along a portion of the trail. As a company, we feel that these holes could be dangerous to the runners and the horses that patrol this portion of the course. Swimming to avoid this section of the trail is a safer solution. As for the climbing, we thought it would be a good idea to add some additional climbing in order to bring body temperatures back up after exiting the freezing cold water.
To help celebrate this course change, we are offering $5.00 off any entry. Use promo code “APRILFOOL” when registering.
Not Running? Have you considered volunteering? We have a pretty sweet incentive program for our volunteers. Check it out here.
This Is No Joke
We plan on rewarding all of our runners with a custom finishers glass and we’ll even fill it up for you (21 and over). Ohio Outside is proud to be serving Goose Island and Michelob Ultra after the race.
All runners will receive a custom, gender specific, short sleeve tech top, Honey Stinger products on course and in your race bag, post race food and a custom finisher beer glass.
