Event Day

Event Day

Fall is such an amazing time of year to experience the outdoors.  Every turn of the mountain trails bring new terrain, new challenges, and new landscape.  This years Apex run will no doubt greet you with mud, technical trails, and new elements.  What an awesome way to enjoy fall before winter is upon us!  Bring your friends and make memories as you challenge your physical and mental endurance throughout the course.  One of the few races out there to provide hot showers, we also invite you to stay for lunch and then join us for Miracle Mountain Ranch’s Harvest Party.  Your afternoon will be full of opportunities to take in the sights and smells of fall through games, pony rides, trail rides, face painting, and a cider press.  Many more activities will be available as well as some great ranch food for a small donation.  This day is geared for the entire family to enjoy.  So don’t miss out this October 18th.  Rain or shine, it will be a great day of making...
