Park Map: Sandy Bottom Nature Park is Hampton's premier park consisting of a 456 acre environmental education and wildlife management facility. Born from borrow pits and garbage dumps, the park is truly a success story of reclamation of our natural resources. Miles of interconnecting trails provide area runners with a variety of surfaces and scenic views.

Minding Our Manners: Special thanks to the city of Hampton and Sandy Bottom Nature Park for hosting our race for the 16th year! Remember we are guests of the park and that other, non-runners, will be out enjoying the park during the race. Please be aware of and adhere to park rules regarding parking and camping. We strive to leave the park and facilites just as we found them.
