This is a zero carbon event, meaning we take into account the emissions released in relation to hosting this trail race. The Running Kind will be subsidizing the cost to offset the event, however there will be an extra $1 added on to your registration specifically for this cost. This $1 will offset the carbon emissions for your personal travel to and from the event. We are excited to partner with Native Energy to support a carbon offset project we believe in.

In addition to going zero carbon at this event, The Running Kind will be collecting monetary donations for The Catskills Center.

Event's current local time: 3:42 PM ET
