This Weekend on the Trails

Saturday, November 1

Jack London Trail Race 10K, Nashua NH - The course is run entirely on trails through Mine Falls. The terrain is mostly flat. The footing is rugged but safe, over rocks, roots, and packed dirt. The trail is well-marked, with signs and volunteers directing racers at trail intersections.

The race will utilize some of the lesser used trails in the park, through winding singletrack and rolling riverside paths. This trail makes for a challenging yet fun course. 

This is a race I've wanted to run since I heard about it three years ago. Unfortunately, I've had scheduling conflicts and have yet to run it.  I really want a pair of the Jack London wolf socks!

Winnekenni Trail Run 4M, Haverhill MA - This is the first time I've heard of a trail race in a park with a castle! Winnekenni Park (the name comes from the Algonquin dialect, which means "very beautiful") is a hilly, city-owned conservation area of more than 700 acres. Upon entering the Park, you will see the Basin and Kenoza Lake behind it. These two bodies of water make up approximately half of the Park area.

And then there's the Stone Cat Ale Marathon and 50 Mile trail race but this one is sold out.
Enjoy the weekend and happy running!
