The race is sponsored by the Helvetia Fair Association in conjunction with the 92nd Annual Helvetia Fair. The Helvetia 10k Mountain Run is part of the Mountain State Trail Run Series and the Trail Runner Magazine Trophy Series!

The 10K Cross Country Run - 9am start: This run is a challenging mix of paved road, dirt road and mountainous trail. It's a 9:00 am start. The course follows a portion of the route the original Swiss settlers used when first coming to the area in October 1869. You will be crossing creeks and enjoying beautiful views. The first 2 miles are flat along the banks of the Buckhannon River. The next 2.5 miles climb 750 feet along Upper Trout Run to a scenic hilltop. The last 1.7 miles quickly descends Zumbach Road back to Helvetia.

The 2-Mile Walk starts immediately behind the 10k and follows the same route to the 2 mile mark.

The Kids Fun Run - 8:45 am start: The event is for ages 10 and under. It's a blast seeing the young runners toe the line like their grownups. You won't want to miss it!

Registration: Pre-registration for the 10k and the 2 mile walk is $14 if postmarked by Aug. 28, 2006 and $17 thereafter. Race day registration will be from 7:00 to 8:30 am. Beautiful cotton t shirt guaranteed to all pre-registrants.

Camping and Other Activities: Free camping is available at the Lehmann Farm. Come for the weekend if you'd like. Call or email for information or directions. We are right on the 10K course. We will do a short hash run on Saturday Sept. 9 at 5pm.
