Roar to the Pogue (RTTP) is a great way to do a trail run and train for CBHM.
Typically the trail run takes place the 2nd weekend in June. The last race was held in June 2019.
We had hoped to have the race return this June but scheduling for 2023 just wouldn’t work.
Fingers crossed for a June 2024 return.
