Highrock Hop



A free, no frills, trail run/walk of 5 mile/10 miles.

Saturday, March 31, 2012 Rain or Shine

(Although flooding may cause cancellation!)

Start time is 9:30 A.M. at Highrock Farms, a private posted land 15 miles north of Batesville.

The course will be well-marked with tape or flags and is primarily on a single track trail. This is a scenic and challenging trail in hardwood forests, along bluffs, and through some pastures. There are three creek crossings (knee deep). There may be roots, crevasses, bluffs, nasty insects, two and four-legged herbivores and carnivores. The race will be run in the reverse of last years course direction. A new section has been added that mostly follows the creek along some bluffs. No major hills were added. The 5 mile course will start and end in common with the 10 mile course. It has two creek crossings.

There will be two water stations and volunteers monitoring the course.


The registration for the 5 and the 10 mile race is FREE. T shirts may be purchased for $15.

NO WHINERS! A guide will be available for those with trail dyslexia*. Food and refreshments will be provided at the finish.
