Race, Run, Jog, Hike or Walk !
Sonder (v.) The realization that each random passer-by is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.
Local time: 6:43 AM
Neatly nestled away, Roosevelt Forest will be brought to life with the running of the fourth Forgotten Forest Ultra Run !
The Ultra run will last 9 hours from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. All Racers, Runners, Joggers, Hikers and Walkers are invited to participate in this very friendly event. Do as many miles or hours, as you wish. Experience on a trail is mandatory for safety, so a little practice is warranted. There will be an award for first, second and third overall and first male and female in the category of senior/master or 50 years of age and older with most miles completed. Also, an Ultra Medal for anyone participating for 4 or more hours.You will travel over a single and double track trail with a little elevation on a double loop of 3.5 and 2.7 miles; a completed course loop is then 6.2 or a 10K. The loops will be well marked with signs and white and pink taping; no getting lost! There will be a few out and backs of which you will pass each other, over the hours, and cheer each other on! It is, also a great 100 mile training run for a Fall race. Dunkin' Donuts bagels, donuts to start and coffee all day with pizza at 1 PM. Amped Fuel/Hydration and Gu gels continuously. You must be at least 18 years of age. A charitable portion of this race will go to the Roosevelt Forest Trail Commission/Dog Park and the Stratford EMS. A very important thing to note is, this is limited to only 50 participants, so register early and save money and reserve your spot for a day in the Forgotten Forest ! Registration is non-refundable because of cost endured, it will then be considered a donation. Race, Run, Jog, Hike or Walk, you have up to 9 hours to do YOUR BEST (you have the option of less miles and hours, also). This ultra is part of the Roosevelt Forest Ultra Trail Series. See you soon and Happy Trails !
