Calling all Princesses and Princes :
Neatly nestled away, in North Stratford, the forest will be brought to life with the running of the first Enchanted Forest Ultra Run !
Local time: 9:42 AM
The Ultra run will last 6 hours from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. All 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 55 years of age and older (may adjust woman to 50+) with most miles completed. Also, an Ultra medal for anyone participating for 4 or more hours without any stop over 15 minutes. You will travel over a single and double track trail with very little elevation on a single loop of about 3.5 miles. There will be 2 out and backs and this will aid in a relatively fast course for a trail ultra. And great for a 100 mile training run. Dunkin' Donuts bagels, donuts to start and coffee all day with pizza at noon. Amped Fuel and Gu hourly. You must be at least 18 years of age.
A charitable portion of this race will go to the Roosevelt Forest Trail Commission, the Stratford EMS and pending another local charity, too.
A very important thing to note is this is limited to only 57 participants, so register quickly and reserve your spot to be enchanted by the forest. Register early and save, however it is non-refundable because of cost endured, it will then be considered a donation. Race, run, jog, hike or walk, you have up to 6 hours to do your best! If one wanted to extend their mileage and time to finish a certain amount, please note that the race ends at 2:30 PM and you are at your own risk and insurance does not cover you; an unofficial result could be applied.
Remember to look for the pixies, trolls and unicorns !
