Due to the City of Bowling Green's new Covid Restrictions we are shifting gears and moving the Low Hollow Trail Fest venue to the Twisted Oliver Trail (25 mins East) at Port Oliver Recreation Area located at Port Oliver Boat Ramp Road, on Barren River Lake. We have already mapped out the Courses for the 5K, Fun Run, MTB A Race, MTB B Race, MTB Jr Race, Kids MTB and The Time Trial. All mileages are very very similar. The date and Time remains Saturday 10/24/20. This new venue has a much larger parking and staging area including an amphitheater and Restrooms and is a fun packed trail. We are excited about the change - Some things happen for a reason!


Welcome to the 8th annual Low Hollow Trail Fest! The day will kick off with the 5k Trail running race at 8:00 am. The first MTB event will begin at 10:00am.  We have a free MTN Bike Beginners Clinic this year along with music. This is a fundraising event for trail stewardship and the future trail building efforts for SW KyMBA. See the schedule of events below for more detail. Online Registration Ends on 8/20/20 at 11pm. Day of Registration Starts at 7am.

You may enter an individual event or save money and register for the King/ Queen of the Trail competition that is the combined fastest time for all 3 events (5k run, MTB A & MTB TT).

Prizes will be awarded to Age group and overall winners in the 5k and in Overall competitions for the MTB A, B & TT races, respectfully. Event T-Shirts are included in with your registration on a first come first serve basis. Thus the first 225 shirts are provided while supplies last so register early to secure your Trail Fest T-Shirt.

The MTB A race (Cat 1 & 2) will be 6 laps. The MTB B race (Cat 3) will be 3 laps. The Junior category may race with the B’s & will be 2 laps. No Racing License required. Depending on rider turnout we may elect to race the Jr wave separately.

Both events are non-sanctioned but will follow RRCA & USA Cycling rules respectively.


Note: We will do everything in our power to pull off this event. However, In the event of severe weather or muddy trail conditions, the race will be delayed at first, and then if absolutely necessary postponed under extreme weather or muddy conditions. We will not be able to offer refunds if you cannot attend a makeup date or if canceled due to weather as this event is a fundraiser. T-Shirts and race packets may be retrieved if you are registered and cannot attend. An announcement will be made for where and when to pick up your T-Shirt and Race Packet should weather become an issue. Rain Make up dates are Sunday 8/23/20.
