      EVENT DETAILS
      UCT Raizin' Trail Virtual Event

      Upshur County Trails is a volunteer group dedicated to improving trail conditions and creating new trails in the Upshur County area. Our vision is to unite the trail users of Upshur County and surrounding counties to improve the trail usage in Upshur County for recreational uses like mountain biking, trail running and hiking. Our main focus has been on the old cross country trails that are located behind the Buckhannon-Upshur High School in the Upshur County Recreation Park. Our group of volunteers have dedicated not only their time, but also their money in order to maintain and build new trails. Now, an impressive and well used 6+ mile loop is available for enjoyment. However, there’s still work to be done and we need your help. Recently, additional acreage has been leased in order to be developed into more trails. To help fund this work, we’ve partnered with the Upshur County Recreation & Parks Board to establish a fundraiser, UCT Raizin' Trails Virtual Run, Walk, Bike or Hike, to raise awareness and funds for us to continue building and maintaining these beloved trails. 

      Event Info: This virtual event will be held from October 17, 2020  - November 8, 2020. Last day to register will be October 26, 2020.

      During this time, and after paying the registration fee, we encourage you to go out and explore the Upshur County Trails - run, hike, bike, walk or skip. Not only will you receive a super cool t-shirt and/or hat for signing up, but you will also be entered into a drawing to win a prize package featuring local goodies from our sponsors. Want an extra chance to win? Simply visit our facebook page: Upshur County Trails and post a photo of you enjoying the trails with the hashtag #UCTRaizinTrail. 

      Cost: $35 - Entry into the drawing plus an event t-shirt and sticker OR $50 - Entry into the drawing plus an event t-shirt, hat and sticker

      Location: The Upshur County Trails are located behind the Buckhannon-Upshur High School. Drive to 270 BU Drive, Buckhannon, WV, 26201 – once you enter the parking lot stay to the left to drive past the football field. You will see a pavilion and parking lot.
