About The Bryce Conquer the Mountain

The Bryce Conquer the Mountain half marathon in Basye, Virginia is an epic challenge for runners of all levels. The route takes you through the rolling hills and stunning vistas of George Washington National Forest, giving runners a unique opportunity to experience some of the most beautiful scenery in western Virginia. On October 14th, 2023, runners will have their chance to test themselves against this challenging course and make memories that will last a lifetime.

The race starts with a downhill section heading south out of town before entering the national forest where you’ll take on several steep ascents and descents as you climb closer to Bryce Resort. At around mile 7, you’ll reach the highest point on your journey—the summit of Massanutten Peak at 3800 feet—where spectacular views await those willing to conquer it. From there it’s mostly downhill until mile 11 when things start getting tough again as you tackle one final ascent before descending back into Basye for a triumphant finish line celebration!

In terms of typical weather conditions this time year, temperatures tend to be mild with daytime highs ranging from 45-70°F (7-21°C). October also offers plenty of sunshine with average precipitation values slightly below normal for this area making it perfect running weather come race day.

As far crowds go expect plenty cheering support throughout your run – whether its friends or family members waiting at key points along your route or fellow racers encouraging each other towards their best performance yet – everyone here has come together in pursuit of one common goal: To conquer the mountain! And don’t forget about all those dedicated volunteers who put countless hours into putting on such amazing events like these so we can enjoy them safely and comfortably every step (and hill!) Of our way!

If that’s not enough reason alone to sign up right away then consider this: As part of your registration fee each runner receives exclusive access after crossing the finish line including drinks & snacks plus live music entertainment & great prizes too! So what are you waiting for? Come join us on Oct 14th 2023 & Conquer The Mountain at Bryce Half Marathon Race – It’s gonna be awesome!!!
