Rules and Prizing

Unfortunately the actual Valley Vertikiller event can’t happen this year but we’ve come up with a creative way to experience a piece of the Vertikiller lore while staying safe amidst the ongoing pandemic. Introducing the Verticuddler 10K Challenge! Run the loosely flagged official 10k race route any time between Oct 3-31st following the GPX that will be emailed to you prior to the start date. Times will be tracked via Strava and uploaded to this website. Check the leader board for your time vs the other participants. At the end of the month the Top 3 female and male runners will be crowned. We will also virtually giveaway some sweet draw prizes.

  • Runs must be completed during park hours (gate is closed between 6pm – 7am)
