Dogwood 12 Hour Run

Sign Up To Race!

It is the Second Annual Dogwood 12 Hour Run!  The race will be held on Saturday April 9th, 2016 at Pocahontas State Park.   

This is a 12 hour race. The amount you run is totally up to you. If you want to push yourself for 12 hours, go for it! If you want to run a little and then take a break, feel free to do that as well. If this is your first ultra or trail run, you picked a great event!  The scenery at Pocahontas is hard to beat.  New this year is a 10 mile and 4 person relay option.

The 10 mile option is simple. You start at the same time everyone does and complete 4 loops. When you finish that, you’re done.

The 4 person relay option is for those people who don’t want to run 12 hours on their own.  You will have a team of 4 runners. The runners can be either male or female. Every runner must run at least 1 full loop. Runners do not have to run the same number of loops as their teammates. Teams may switch runners every loop. Teams will be tracked by total number of laps completed. The first place team will receive an award!

Best of all t-shirts will be provided to all participants! Prizes will be awarded to 1st and 2nd place runners for males and females. 50 milers awards will also be presented. 

Tell your family and friends to come out and enjoy a great run and a great state park!

The race is sponsored and organized by Virginia Adventures LLC.  We are a local, veteran owned outdoors company devoted to helping runners experience the outdoors.

The race will be limited to 100 runners.  There will be no waitlist.  If you have questions about the race, please e-mail the race director Dan Pulskamp (
