The Reaper 30K is an 18 mile (ish) trail race near the Zilpo Recreation Area at Cave Run Lake in Salt Lick, Kentucky. This gorgeous property is will give you sweeping views of the lake, some deep green forest running, and a nice finishing stroll along the Zilpo Scenic Byway.
Runners will start at the beach near the Zilpo store and run out the road to the trailhead at Buckskin Trail. You will run along the rolling coast line of the lake before heading inland and up your first climb at about mile 8. Runners then go up and down through the lush Daniel Boone National Forest until reaching the Zilpo Scenic Byway at mile 12. The final 6 miles are all on the road and are a perfect opportunity for you to show off that finishing kick!
