Think BBQ with a 5K/10K primer…..the BC-AC Bowl is a weekend to celebrate running and those who live the running lifestyle. It’s also one helluva race course, sort of like trying to run in a bowl — either an out and back (5K) or a clover leaf (10K) sure to push you to your limits!
With a family-friendly camp-out on the grounds of BaseCamp 31 (1250 Rt. 31, Lebanon, NJ 08833) on Saturday night....a "warning siren" will go off at sun-rise, signaling 30 minutes till the 10k start.
10K – Racers will travel down Molasses Hill rd. and then enter the Round Valley Recreation Area (State Park) for an additional 5K on the Cushetunk trail. Trail sections include gravel sections and single track and climbing….lots of climbing...before returning to the BaseCamp 31 property for a trail sprint finish, just as the 5k'ers are preparing to take off, allowing for a spectacular finish line experience!
5K – Racers go off at 8a and will run from BaseCamp31 to the end of Molasses Hill Road and back. Remember, what goes down must come up on this challenging 5K road course.
