Pie at the finish line! Join us for our 5th year of this super-fun annual event, which includes your choice of the Helltown Half, Shenandoah Leaf Peeper 10K, and Festival of Leaves 5K--and made complete with calorie replenishment with a slice of apple pie from local favorite The Apple House! The three distances will have you tackling the hills in and around Front Royal during the Warren Heritage Society's 49th annual Festival of Leaves. With the Shenandoah Mountains and the South Fork of the Shenandoah River as the backdrop at the time of year when the colors of the changing leaves are simply stunning, the miles will fade quickly under your feet as you knock out this two-loop 13.1-mile, single-loop 10K course, or picturesque 5K course. Join us, and earn that pie for sure!

Route information

Timing, Age Groups, and Course Time Limits
The races will be timed using the MyLaps BibChip system. Start and finish times will be recorded and posted live to the race timing web site and will be available at the finish line through interactive screens at the timing trailer. Timing chips are disposable, so feel free to keep it as a memento or toss it in the trash. All awards are based on the chip time.

The MyLaps tracking timing chip is attached to your race bib. Your bib should be attached to your front and be clearly visible.
For the half-marathon you must be able to maintain a 14-minute mile pace. In the event you do not make the cut off, you will be short-coursed to the 10K course.
​Age group awards will be presented 3 deep in all divisions, for all races, for male and female categories: Under 16, 16-19,20-29,30-39,40-49,50+.
Will race for pie?! Then we've got you covered with a delicious slice of apple pie from local legendary restaurant The Apple House.
