Small Race Preview: 2015 Tough As Nails Mountain Run 10-miler and 5k


If you have ever been to the Southern Oregon region, surely you have seen Roxy Ann Peak. Rounded and beautifully rugged, it stands watch over the Rogue Valley residents begging to be traversed.   Roxy Ann is a very popular spot as it is close to town and can easily be accomplished in a couple of hours.  On any given day you can find hikers, bikers, runners, dog walkers, and the like enjoying the trails and amazing views.  There are gravel roads and trail options depending on the experience you are looking for.  Both are easy to moderate in level of difficulty which makes Roxy Ann a perfect hike for the whole family.

On May 9, 2015 athletes will have the opportunity to run and explore at Southern Oregon’s oldest trail running race,  Tough As Nails Mountain Run.   Beginning at Prescott Park, there will be a ‘semi-not-flat’ 5k and a 10 mile mountain run.  You can expect a little of everything… inclines to get your heart racing, declines to give it a break, single track trails, spacious gravel roads… and stunning views that will take your breath away.  A good ol’ country throw down awaits you at the finish line!

So grab a friend or two… and your camera (you’ll want pictures for sure), and your best “Tough As Nails” attitude and head on up for what is sure to be a great race!!!
