Our first race of the year is coming up Wednesday May 25th (that’s this coming Wednesday)! Registration starts at 6 PM with the race beginning at 7. THIS IS NOT OUR SPRING OPENING FESTIVAL! That will be on Sunday June 5th. This is only one of the new things we’re trying this year.

YOU MUST BE A MEMBER TO PARTICIPATE! Registration is open and available on our website.

Wednesday’s race course is as follows:

The course will follow the perimeter of Kinsmen Park with a few added twists and turns.

  • Start along the gravel path and head to the bridge.
  • Cross the bridge and turn right. Follow the Yellow trail along the river and then climb up the hill on the Blue trail
  • Take the first bypass but don’t take the second one. Continue on the Blue trail to the connector trail and turn left to Adventure trail.
