October is a time of crisp days and spectacular colors in the deciduous forests of Southern West Virginia. What better reason to come out to ACE Adventure Center for the New River Gorge-ous Trail Run & Walk.

You have the option of a 15 or 7-mile run and new for this year, a 5-mile walk. You'll find yourself deep in hardwood forests surrounded by hues of orange, yellow and red. Catch your breath, if you can, as you enjoy vistas of the New River Gorge and historic Town of Thurmond 1,000 feet below. Before you know it, you will have crossed the finish line, tasting success as you complete one of the most scenic trail runs in the state!

Bring the whole family and enjoy the amenities ACE has to offer from comfy lodging options, hearty dining, and rafting on the world famous Gauley River. As always, racers camp FREE, however, if you are interested in any of our cabins, be sure to reserve early. Gauley season fills up fast!

Want to raft the Gauley? Race on Saturday and raft the Upper or Lower Gauley Sunday for only $99. Be sure to make your reservations early for this great deal!
