NCTRaces Mission StatementOur mission is to help everyone enjoy the trails, comaraderie, and feel a sense of accomplishment through organized trail races.  NCTRaces aims to achieve this by supporting the NCTA with an annual donation of event proceeds, hosting trail races where everyone is welcome and accepted with a mutual goal, and creating a close-knit family vibe.  

NCTRaces: Bird Sanctuary are held in the Douglas County Wildlife Area locally termed The Bird Sanctuary.  The Bird Sanctuary is managed as a brush prairie habitat with miles of open fields, wildflowers, ponds, and widespread views.  The North Country Trail crosses through the Bird Sanctuary from the northeast corner to the southwest corner.  It is often the first section of trail in the area clear of snow in the Spring, and as a result, is a great place to run.  

There are a few R.V. sites available at the Headquarters/Start/Finish Area.  Contact the Race Director for information and requests.

The distances offered at NCTRaces: Bird Sanctuary are 10k and 20k.  Check out the other sub pages for more info.
