Inaugural Taconic Trails 75k Info:



Taconic Trails 100 75k is an exploratory run of a recently completed trail loop in the South Taconics. It's for anyone who is ready for this distance at the beginning of the running season and aims to introduce new runners to the rugged beauty of the Taconics in the CT, MA & NY Tri-State Region.


2017 Dates & Format:

Saturday, April 22 2017. Supported fun run. 5AM or earlier Start; pre-dusk Finish.


Course:

A ~47 mile single track and country road loop takes one over two of the most prominent ridges in the CT-MA-NY border area. Views of the Berkshires, Catskills, Taconics and farmland valleys surrounding this high plateau abound. Crushed slate & densely vegetated summits provide an air of ruggedness, remoteness & a feeling of independence from most lowland culture.
