Lake Mohegan Trail Race
The inaugural Lake Mohegan Trail Race, a WOMEN"S ONLY trail race event in Fairfield, CT is scheduled for Saturday, April 22, 2023. Steep Endurance is trying to bring more awareness to the availability of trail running for women. Typically 30-40% of participants in trail races are women. Lake Mohegan, with its very runnable/variety of trails, make for an ideal backdrop for this type of event and gives NEW women trail runners a great introduction to trail running, but also provides a great course for those more experienced participants. The race will also be open to non-binary runners as well
Three different events will be offered: 5K, 10K, and a 4 hour option for participants to run/walk as many miles in the allotted time on the 5K loop.
**Please see registration link above to signup. A portion of your entry fee and/or proceeds from the race series will go to a local non-profit charity.
Refund Policy: There will no refunds and/or no transfers of your registration or bib to any other person. Entry fees collected are used to develop and produce the event, starting well in advance of the race date--including course preparation, race supplies, permits, and administration.
Hikers/walkers are more than welcome too!

The course is extremely pretty and runnable with the footing generally good throughout, but there are a few short steep hill sections, but nothing of great length. Both the first time trail runner and the experienced trail runner will certainly enjoy the loop. The loop is 5K in distance with the 10K runners doing the loop twice and the 4 Hour runners as many completed loops as they can before Noon.
