Rattler Trail Run

The Rattler Trail Run will be held at San-Lee Park in Sanford, NC on April 28th, 2018 starting at 9:00 am.  This race offers a 10K and 25K on some of the most challenging and beautiful trails in the region.  The course can be extremely technical and has portions of the course that are filled with roots, rocks and boulders.  The course lacks any significant climbs, however it does sport a rolling elevation profile that offers plenty of uphill and downhill running/walking opportunities.


Registration is open for the 2018 Rattler Trail Run on UltraSignup.  This is a great race for those looking for a challenging race on some beautiful trails without breaking the bank.  Registrations Fees for the 2018 race are as follows:

Before February 1, 2018:

25K:  $30.00     10K:  $25.00

* All Runners who register before April 1st will be guaranteed a race shirt in the size that they select upon registration!

On or after February 1, 2018:

25K:  $35.00     10K:  $30.00

* We cannot guarantee race shirts for runners who register after April 1st due to the fact that we have to place our order far enough out to ensure delivery of the shirts for race day.  We do plan on ordering extra and will provide you with a shirt if we have the appropriate size.  Consider registering before April 1st to qualify for the reduced registration cost and guarantee yourself a race shirt.




The 10K course will be the same as it was in 2015 & 2016 (one 6.2 mile loop).  The 25K course will consist of 2 1/2 loops of the 10K course.  The race will start at the park's pavilion near the upper parking lot and proceed onto the mountain bike trails located near the RV Campground.  The course will run the entirety of the eastern trails and then will head towards the lake right before entering "The Jungle" and follow the lake trails to the finish in a counter clockwise direction.

Aid Stations will be located at mile 3.0, 6.2 (finish for 10K), 9.2, 12.4, 15.4, and 15.7 (finish for 25K).
