Welcome back to the 3rd edition of the Howland Preserve Trail Race! The course will be a 5 mile trail race taking part mostly in shaded woods on single track hiking/biking trails. It will begin near the preserve barn and progress up a grassy path into the trail system. The trails are mostly smooth with a few minor stonewall crossings as well as some natural drainage dips. The terrain will be relatively hilly by climbing up some 280 feet twice in the race before being rewarded with fast, flowy downhill sections. This is an excellent trail/cross country hybrid for someone interested in trail running for the first time!
Local time: 3:29 PM
This race is self supported so there will be no aid stations on course.
