|Gay City State Park, Hebron, CT|
Connecticut State Parks are celebrating 100 years, and we love showing them off with trail races. With a few hundred friends, we enjoyed 3.3 and 5.5 miles at Gay City State Park in Hebron last weekend. We’re ready for another 3.5 miles at Bluff Point State Park in Groton this Sunday for our first-ever Bluff Point Trail Run.
|Summer Solstice Trail Run Finishers|
If you’re a little unsure about taking your run off the pavement, or a little coordination-challenged (like me), Bluff Point is great way to go. A smoother course than many with mostly dirt trails, it offers breathtaking views of Long Island Sound combined with lush forest. You can go it alone with the security of knowing our course monitors will have your back this Sunday. We cap entry to ensure a manageable field that also protects the trails we’re enjoying.
We welcome hearing about your favorite trails and the paths that brought you to them. Please share any suggestions you have for trail races or what you’d like to see in an upcoming off-road event.
