One of the few trail races in St. Lawrence County, proceeds from this race benefit local conservation and environmental education initiatives. This flat 7 kilometer (approximately 4.4 mile) course connects the Kip and Saddlemire Trails at St. Lawrence University, passing through scenic forests and wetlands along the Little River. The flat terrain makes this course suitable for runners and walkers of varying fitness levels. The course will be well marked, with volunteers at major intersections. Short road segments connect the longer stretches of trail. Be prepared for a few muddy sections. Stick around to learn more about the St. Lawrence Land Trust and Nature Up North’s conservation and environmental education initiatives. Bagels, fruit and water will be served after the race. They will also offer a prize raffle, with chances to win gift certificates and other prizes from Nature’s Storehouse, The Bagelry, Newmanzone Maple, Nature Up North, TAUNY, and more!.
