2021 Gear & Finisher’s Medal

Our awesome design team has come up with a great look for this year’s Finisher Medal, shirt, running buff and water bottles.


The Brainy Day Trail Run includes three distance races: 5k, 10k, and 15k. If you are familiar with Brainy Day and have run our race in the past, the 2021 course has changed. For the 10k and 15k, you will be running repeats of the original 5k trail. We will be limited to no more than 600 participants.

Schedule of Events

At this time we’re scheduling a rolling start setup with separate start times for each race to accommodate current COVID guidelines. Our hope is that some of these guidelines will be lifted by race day. This is a tentative race schedule. Any changes to the schedule will be communicated via your registration email address.

Course Description

For 2021, we will be running the existing 5k course – in reverse direction. For the 10k and 15k distances, you will be running repeats of the 5k course. Unlike years past where you could run both the 5k and 10k races, in 2021, you will only be allowed to register for one race.
