Relive your youth and experience the thrill of running cross country in this fun 5k (3.1 mile) trail race at Stratton Brook State Park in Simsbury, CT on Saturday, September 17 at 8:30am. All ages and abilities are welcome!

This race kicks off the 36th Annual Stratton Brook XC Invitational which showcases the speed of over 20 area high school XC teams. Participants will follow the same scenic 3.1 mile course as the high schoolers - which includes a few covered bridge crossings and short, but challenging hills.

Trail shoes are not necessary, but will help you get better footing on the dirt trails.

This is a great event for those who are new to running and for those who want to experience trail running on a well maintained course. Walkers and kids are welcome!

Experience how fun a run in the woods with friends can be!
