Tuesday Night Trail Races
Looking for a low-key way to test your summer fitness? Starting on May 29th, our weekly trail series offers a 5k run and 5 or 10k bike race every Tuesday, for only $5/race or $30 for the entire series - annual members and houseguests race for free!
As usual, races will rotate between two courses at the Outdoor Center with a few trips up to Hosmer Point. Please note that the FIRST RACE of the season will be held at HOSMER POINT!! Bikers and runners will alternate courses at the Center, with bikers contesting one course and runners the other. The Center's courses are still in preparation as we're waiting on a few reroutes and logging operations. Course maps will be posted as soon as they are available. In addition to the races at the Center and Hosmer Point, we're excited to return to both Sterling College and the Hardwick Trails (course map).
Bikers start at 5:45pm and runners start at 6:00pm. We will once again be offering online preregistration on Webscorer (see schedule below) as well as day-of registration which opens at 5:15pm in the Activity Center/Touring Center. Pre-registrants will be entered to win a cookie prize every week! Day-of registration closes at 5:40pm for bikers and 5:50pm for runners. Even if you register online, please check in with the race organizers to collect your bib! And if you think you'll do more than one race, we encourage you to register for the whole series as it makes the whole process easier. The start line is on the Upper Soccer Field near the white tent.
Season long prizes for ages group winners and overall winners (see scoring rules) will be awarded at the end of season wood-fired pizza party. We hope to see folks of all ages participating in these fun races.

* Bib pick-up, registration, and race start/finish will take place in the Hazen Union parking lot. Bathrooms are available in the school. All registration and start times will be moved back by 15 minutes to ensure the timing crew makes it! Thus, registration will open at 5:30pm and close at 5:45pm for bikers and 6:00pm for runners. Bikers will start at 6pm and runners at 6:15pm. All three events will be offered (5k run, 5k bike, and 10k bike) on one 5k course. The course will be marked with yellow signs and you can see the course map here (marked in black with directional arrows).
** We will only be offering a running event at Sterling. No bike race!! Start/finish will be on the common. The course is very technical!
