Autum Squatch 10K Trail Race

Each year just as the season turns, hundreds of squatch enthusiasts descend upon thewoods of Alum Creek in search of the elusive Autumn Squatch.  The first recorded sighting was in the fall of 2012, with multiple sightings over the years.

The Autumn Squatch is most commonly seen poking around the Rocks and Roots trail on late autumn nights as he passes through on his way south for the winter. To celebrate the coming of the squatch each year we head out into the woods on the a beautiful autumn evening.


All signs are pointing to great chances of spotting the Autumn Squatch this year. Join us on the trail November 3rd, run a little, laugh a lot, and keep your eyes out for the squatch!
