This Event Took Place Sun. Oct 19, 2014


Now celebrating our 8th Annual Running of this event!

The GVH Mudlsog XC event is brought to you by the combined minds of some of the most noted events and organizations in the Greater Rochester NY area. The directors of the Highlander Cycle Tour and The Genesee Valley Harriers have teamed up to create this "destination" off-road running race. Born out of a love for cross-country, trails, hills and mud, the search for the perfect venue near to Rochester culminated in a true gem of a find at the JLD Equine farm in the Trail Town of Perinton, NY.

Without a doubt, it will be an epic 12K that is both challenging and exhilirating with added elements of surprise to the unsuspecting runner. Make no mistake. This will not be a flat boring road race. There will be multiple climbs, beautiful vistas, single-track trails (including the famous Crescent Trail system), running through and around farm fields, corn fields, forests, creeks, ponds, obstacles, and more. We believe it will challenge the runners stamina, courage, and spirit while leaving them yearning for more. For the kids, there will be a great 2k race to provide plenty of challenge and stimulation. Our goal is the most fun on 2 feet possible.

The runners will be treated to excellent post race party offerings. Runners will receive technical wear from Innovative Edge Sports and more in their goodie bag. Exciting awards will be up for grabs to the hearty competitors. Proceeds will Benefit GVH, Crescent Trail Association, and Perinton Pride. GVH is committed to the development of running in our beautiful area of the world and to the support and sponsorship of national class athletes at all ages.
