Noon: 10K This race is part of the USATF-CT Association Mountain/Ultra/Trail Running Series this year. A challenging loop over Haystack Mountain, begins on the same route as the 5K, but jumps off of the Sunset Trail onto the South Dam, crosses Rt. 272N and ascends through a grassy meadow onto an intense single track up Norfolk's iconic Haystack Mountain. Summit at the Haystack Tower, and descend down the mountainside on a carriage path to meet up with the Crossover Trail-- a single track that winds along the mountainside and brings you back to the park's main entrance where you will cross over the South Dam, run along a grassy section of old railroad bed and back into the woods onto a beautiful gladed wetland to the finish.
12:30: 5K A challenging and scenic race through picturesque Barbour Woods. The course is a mixture of single and double track. Climb up Beech Hill for a view of Haystack Mountain, run on carriage roads beside historic Killarney Bridge, descend down the dry dam to a flat stretch of railroad bed, ascend through woodlands and finally along a gladed wetland, known as the Swamp Trail to the finish.
