Can you endure ?
The Town of Stratford is very fortunate indeed to be one of the few towns or cities in the nation to have its very own forest, this beautiful 401 acre forest is part of the town's excellent park system.
Local time: 5:16 AM
Roosevelt Forest was set up during the depression in the 1930's. It was developed in large part through President Franklin D. Roosevelt's W.P.A. program, designed to provide jobs for legitimate public projects. The park was established to provide recreational opportunities for townspeople, and to protect the watershed, wildlife and beauty of this fine example of mixed deciduous forest.
A charitable portion of this race will go to the Roosevelt Forest Trail Commission and the Stratford EMS. A very important thing to note is this is limited to only 50 participants, so register quickly and reserve your spot for being alive in the outdoors. Also a great training run for a fall 100 miler attempt. Because of incurred cost; registration is nonrefundable. Run, jog, hike or walk, you have nine hours to do your best.
