The Webster Trail Classic will take place in three neighboring parks in Webster, NY. Each park has a different style of trail building so each offers a unique running experience. It is an excellent trail system that we have been so lucky to get permission to use. Thank you to the Town of Webster, Friends of Webster Trails, and the Genesee Land Trust.
The race will start and end at the Valley View shelter off of Holt Road in Webster Park. The course will stick to the west side of the park. A connecter trail leading to Whiting Road will give runners access to the Whiting Road Nature Preserve.
Whiting Road Nature Preserve:
WRNP is a beautiful park with a widely varied trail system. Runners will cover open fields, wooded single track, bridges, and the most elevation changes on the course. A connecter trails will lead runners to Pellet Road and the Gosnell Big Woods Preserve.
Gosnell Big Woods Preserve:
The last of the three parks is one of the highlights of the course. The Big Woods Trail is one of several old growth forests we will pass through during the race. We have been given special permission to use this section of trail by the Genesee Land Trust, the holder of the permanent conservation easement. After running the beautiful section we will loop the Big Field and return to Pellet Road via the Meadow Trail. The course then returns to WRNP and Webster Park on the way to the finish.
The 3.5 mile stays solely in Webster Park on an almost identical route to what the 10 milers run when in the park.
The kids fun run starts and finishes in the same location as all of the other runs. It starts at 11am and is just about 1 mile long. Some in the field and a little bit of single track to introduce kids to the sport!!!
There will be one aid station on the course. It will be place at roughly the halfway point of the race in the Big Field sections of the Gosnell Big Woods Preserve.
Important! This aid station will be cup free. This keeps the course clean and reduces waste. Please carry a bottle if you plan to refill on course.
This event is pre-registration only. There will be no day-of registration!
The race will start and finish at the Valley View shelter in Webster Park. Parking will be available in the lot near the shelter and along the access road leading to it. The access road is located on Holt Road.
Local time: 5:17 AM
