It's time once again for the famous New River Gorge-ous Trail Run and Walk! Come and enjoy the fall colors of beautiful Southern West Virginia while running or walking on picturesque trails hovering above the New River Gorge.

You have the option of a 13.2 or 7.5 mile run, or a 4.5-mile walk. All of the courses wander through deep hard wood forests and offer spectacular views of the river and the historic town of Thurmond 1,000 feet below. So whether you come for some great competition or a leisurely jog or stroll, you'll enjoy every step of your trek over some of the most scenic paths in the state.

Bring along family and friends to enjoy some of the other amenities at ACE Adventure Resort.The full-service dining lodge, the Lost Paddle Bar and Grill, whitewater rafting, and horseback riding are just a few of the many adventures to be had. ACE even provides free camping to racers! But for those of you who look for more comfy lodging, check out our chalets and cabins and be sure to reserve these early!

Don't miss this great opportunity to enjoy the Gorge-ous autumn of West Virginia!
