Terra Trail Half Marathon and "Half-Half" Trail Run

February 10, 2018 at 8:00am

Johnston Woods, McDonald, TN


Thank you runners! What an awesome first year! Searchable results are below. Click here for mobile-friendly results.


The Terra Trail Half Marathon and "Half-Half" (6.x mile) trail race will take place on Saturday, February 10, 2018, at Johnston Woods Retreat Center in McDonald, TN (298 Brymer Creek Rd. McDonald, TN 37353). The half marathon is a 2-loop course on a mixture of beginner single track, gravel road beds, and slightly more challenging single track. The "half-half" will be one loop of the 2 loop course. Many of the trails used for the summer Bear Claw Trail race will be used.

The race will begin and end near the lodge at Johnston Woods, providing you with warmth and shelter before and after your jaunt through the woods.


The half marathon will pass through at least 3 stations (one mid-way through each loop and one as you start the second loop). The half-half will pass through one aid station.

Aid stations will be stocked with water, electrolyte drink, gels, and various snacks that we think would taste good such as M&Ms, salty chips, and pretzels. We encourage runners to utilize a handheld bottle or hydration pack that you can refill at the aid stations.

Awards will be given to the 1st place overall male and female finishers, as well as 1st place in the following age groups: 9 and under, 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and over. 

The race will be professionally chip-timed by Terra Running Company with immediate online results!

The average low temperature on race day is 30 degrees and the average daytime high is 53 degrees. However, being February, it may be significantly colder or warmer. There is a possibility of cold rain, snow, or ice. We will run in any weather unless there is dangerous conditions on the roads. In the unfortunate event of a dangerous weather event, we will make an attempt to stage the race on another weekend in February. In this case, runners would also have the option of transferring to the Bear Claw Trail Race if they are unable to run the make up date. Due to the nature of producing events, all of our costs are incurred before the event takes place and before the weather is known, so no refunds will be offered. By registering, you agree that you are knowingly sharing the risk (and benefit) of a cool winter-time off road event.
