Date: June 4, 2021

Length: 4 Miles, 8 Miles

Start Time: 6:30pm

Location: Stewart Lodge, Mendon Ponds Park - Honeoye Falls, NY (map)

Your choice of 4 Miles or 8 Miles in a true off-road challenge!  Enjoy the picturesque Mendon Ponds Park, complete with wonderful fauna filled trails, perfect inclines (gotta be positive about them) and a great way to spend a Friday Night!

You can begin anytime between 5-6PM.

The course is a 4 mile loop. As this is a true trail run, no spikes are allowed. Trail shoes are recommended, but not necessary. While the course will have at least one water stop, there will be no cups so we require that you carry a water bottle with you. 

While note encouraged, participants in the 4 Mile distance may elect to change to the 8 Mile distance by running a second lap. Participants in the 8 Mile distance may elect to drop to the 4 Mile distance by heading to the finish after their first lap. All changes MUST be communicated to the race timer at the finish line.  Ideally please let us know before the race so we do not have to do a search for you.
