The musings of a middle-aged, back of the pack, often injured, semi-retired ultra runner. Running, biking, camping or hiking, I do whatever I can to live an outdoor life. "The older I get, the better I was."
The Traprock 50K will be held the weekend of April 3-4 in West Hartford. It is a 3 loop course of approximately 11 miles each through the woods of the West Hartford Reservoir. There is one big climb per loop. The rest of the course is rolling terrain with beautiful scenery. It is a combination of double-track and single-track with a portion of the race run on the historic Metacomet Trail along Connecticut's beautiful traprock ridge.
The actual date is still not set due to permitting issues and other conflicting races in the area on the 3rd. I question the wisdom of holding the race on April 4th though since it is Easter Sunday. If it’s Saturday I will be there.
