This will be the 5th annual Kewash Trail Half Marathon and we have a distance for everyone; a 5K, 10K and Half Marathon.

This is an out and back, fast, non-technical course. The Kewash Trail is a gradual decline and incline with some flat areas, it is NOT a hilly course by any means, but you will see some short small hills along they way.

New for 2018: the "mud road crossing" has a new look, the crossing and a short stretch of trail on each side of this road that has been paved to keep it from washing out.

Course Description:

The Kewash Nature Trail is a former railroad bed that winds for nearly 14 miles between the towns of Keota and Washington.  The Kewash Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Run is run on the section of trail between West Chester and Washington, which has a crushed limestone surface for most of its route (the portion within Washington's city limits is paved asphalt). This trail a mixture of woodland and prairie, which offers a scenic view of the surrounding rolling countryside; wildlife and wildflowers are abundant along this natural corridor. Some of the highlights along the trail include Willow Pond, Hayes Timber and The Crooked Creek Bridge - one of the most scenic places on the trail. 

The Half Marathon, 10K and 5K will all start and finish at the town square. This is an out and back, fast, non-technical course. The Kewash Trail is a gradual decline and incline with some flat areas, it is NOT a hilly course by any means, but you will see some short small hills along they way.
