Trails are drying out, it must be time to start the Tuesday Night Trail Races! The first race of the series will be held on May 28 and we will once again rotate between two different five-kilometer courses at the Outdoor Center, with a couple of field trips to Hosmer Point (HP) and other local venues.

Registration will open for everyone at 5:15pm on the Upper Soccer Field by the white tent and will close at 5:40pm ...
