New Trail Run: A Mild Sprain 4.25 miler May 20, 2012

Update 5/21/12: Results are here! Great race and a great day on Sunday! Thanks to David and Brant and the volunteers for putting it together!

Friend of the Loop David Vogel has put together a new 4.25 mile trail race in Sprain Ridge Park in Yonkers, NY called “A Mild Sprain.” This one will be popular! For all of our runners in the NYC boroughs and southern Westchester this is just over the Bronx border in Yonkers at a beautiful county park… Everyone farther afield it will be worth the trip… sign up quick!

Race date is Sunday May 20th, 2012 and start time is 9:45am (check in 8:30-9:30am).

All net proceeds go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). JDRF’s mission is to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications through the support of research.

The 4.25 mile course is a great fun test of trail running… has some great climb, fun downhill, single track, switchbacks, along with plenty of rocks and logs to navigate… There will be a water station at the 2.25-mile mark. Course checks will be held 8am sunday 5/6 and saturday 5/12 for those who want to get to know the course ahead of the race.

More information on the race is available here: including logistics, registration, and contact information. We’re looking forward to participating in this exciting new trail race!
