2018 Abas Auto Stony Mountain Run

If you haven’t yet made it out to the ABAS AUTO STONY MOUNTAIN RUN – you really need to consider putting it on your Fall race calendar!

This year’s event is our fourth annual and is on September 22nd.  Early bird discount ends on August 31st, so don’t delay!

Stony Mountain provides a great location for an event like this with a combination of quiet town roads and wide/smooth scenic gravel trails through the forests and old quarry.  Actually, the Run is the prime fundraiser for the development of the local walking/running trail network and a new section will be built just in time for the Run!  Oh, and did I mention the hills?  Yes we have hills!!

We also offer custom finisher medals for everyone and awards (complete with podium!) for the top three male and female in each event.

Also, for those youth members, our 3K event is part of the MRA Youth Series.

Event/distance details provided below and more information at the links provided (including Running Room registration link).

Hope to see you out!
