Castlewood State Park, Ballwin, MO

All athletes receive an official Castlewood Cup hooded sweatshirt and the awards go three deep in each of the 5-year age groups.  Like its autumnal cousin The Skippo, the post race party, on-course hydration and fuel stations make this event top-notch for trail enthusiasts and novices alike!
