Now its 2nd decade, the Owls Roost Rumble is a favorite of North Carolina trail runners. We have seem blazing fast times but don’t be fooled the course isn’t a walk in the park. The race is also perfect for the beginner trail runner because of the gorgeous scenery. The … MORE

    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 😉
