2018 is here and we have some news about the 2018 Trail Mix Series!
The 2018 Trail Mix will feature SEVEN trail races in Westchester and Fairfield Counties. Yes you read right – Seven Races!
This year we have added our first new Trail Mix race in 3 years: The Paine to Pain Trail Half Marathon on October 7th!
Runners have been asking us (and the Paine to Pain folks) if we could make this happen and we are so happy to have Paine to Pain as a part of the series. The race requirement to complete the series and be scored remains at four. See details below.
Date information and links to the websites are below.
- April 22 – Leatherman’s Loop (lottery entry – race is full)
- June 3 – A Mild Sprain (register)
- September 16 – Where the Pavement Ends (register)
- September 30 – Sarah Bishop Bushwhack (register)
- October 7 – Paine to Pain (registration opens Earth Day, April 22nd)
- October 21 (tentative)- Run The Farm (register)
- November 11 – Raven Rocks Run (register)
Runners can compete in the series by completing at least 4 of the 7 races. The best four count towards the point totals for the series. If runners complete five, six, or seven of the series races they can drop their lowest race(s) — only counting the best 4 races. The more races you run, the better your score becomes!
Runners who complete the series get scored and are eligible for age-category recognition and are guaranteed automatic selection in the Leatherman’s Loop Lottery the following year when they enter the Loop Lottery.
Our best way to share information about the Trail Mix Series is when friends tell their friends about the series. If you know someone who might be interested in running in the series, please forward this note to them.
If you have any questions about the 2018 Trail Mix Series, please let us know via email.
