Smultroställe (n.) Origin: Swedish: Definition: A special place discovered, treasured, returned to for solace and relaxation; a personal idyll free from stress and sadness.
Welcome to the gateway of CT running ! A great first ultra experience or for training for a summer 100 K or M. Located in the Town of Stratford, CT they are very fortunate indeed to be one of the few towns or cities in the nation to have its very own forest. Roosevelt Forest was set up during the depression in the 1930's. This beautiful 401 acre forest is part of the town's excellent park system. 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. Neatly nestled away, in North Stratford, the forest will be brought to life with the running of the sixth Enchanted Forest Ultra on Earth Day weekend, April 23, 2022 !

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 1st, 2nd and 3rd Female and 1st, 2nd and 3rd Male 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 trails with some elevation on a circuit of about 3 miles. There will be 1 out and back and this will aid in a relatively fast course for a trail ultra. Dunkin' Donuts bagels, donuts and coffee to start with pizza at noon. H20,endurance drink and Gels all day. You must be at least 18 years of age or with a parental signed waiver for 18 and under.
A charitable portion of this race will go to the Roosevelt Forest Trail Commission, the Stratford EMS and other Town charities.
