“Rugged, remote, beautiful – these are the trails in Groton State Forest. Join us for this new trail event, aimed at bringing you back to the forest and providing you with an unrivaled running experience. Runners can choose from either a 26.5 mile course or a 15.2 mile course that are both technical, challenging and gorgeous.
Both courses are a mix of Hiking Trail: which is generally technical single track, Multi-use Trail: open to bikers and horses – mixed single and double track and Dirt Road: forest/park road, rail trail, and town roads. They were both designed to feature some of the best trails and most interesting spots of the northern end of Groton State Forest with as little overlap as possible.”
5K entirely on dirt trails through the wooded Red Rocks Park. The course is gently rolling with a couple overlooks of Lake Champlain. Examining the map below – runners race the left loop, then the right loop and then do the left loop again before heading back to the finish. Excellent footing.
