    Trivium Racing took over as the timing company/race director of this race in 2022. Communication from them has always been top-notch. T-shirts were gender-specific tech with a cool looking owl printed on the front. This was the 3rd of 4 trail races in a series where the finishers medals connect together to form a larger medal. Age group awards were a nice metal placard with the same owl design as the shirt.

    The trail was not the most technical I’ve been on, with minimal rocks but sections with lots of roots. There were numerous views of the lake. I had hoped for a better finish time, but two weeks in Vegas with over overindulgence and no running really slowed me down.

    Due to the nature of the course, there were not very many water stops and only one location with a portapotty (around mile 9). I was glad I wore my hydration belt.

    I would consider running this again.

    This was the final race of my career with HPU club running (and my last race for two years). I did the half marathon, and somersaulted over the finish because it was grassy. It was a trail marathon, with some very narrow dirt trails here and there. I think they could have used another water station or two (there might have been three total?) and definitely one more near the end. I was pretty gassed because the bumpy trails do a number on the knees. But this is a general trail run gripe, nothing specific to Owls Roost. Maybe I just hit a wall, but I SWEAR the last two miles was more like three miles. I was running FOREVER before I finally got to the finish. And my time showed it. I usually run like low 1:50’s for half marathons. Oh well. Nice trail run, but no extraordinary scenery. Just classic NC forests.

    *TONS of free canned beer at the end though. A lot of rarer craft beers too. I grabbed four or five different brands on my way out 😉
