The Billygoat Run is a long (12-14km) mass-start event with a twist. You may skip any one control of your choice. T-shirts to all finishing in under 3.5 hrs.

One course only. (If the Billygoat Run is too much of a good thing for you, remember shorter and easier courses (W/Y/O level) will be available for day-of-meet entry at the event site.) recreational starts are from 11:15-1pm.

Note that standard rate entries must be registered online and checks postmarked by 4/10; late entries must be received by 4/20. 'Day-of-meet' entries will be accepted (subject to map availability) at a higher fee until 10:30am on event day (4/25). However please still enter online even after 4/20 until Friday 4/23 - preprinted maps are more likely to be available if you do.

You must still send a check for your entry fees if you register online.
See the Billygoat main page for the whole story.

This event is part of the 26th Annual Billygoat Weekend
