Run with the Beavers Trail Race

I am directing (along with Karen Benway) a new trail race in Chepachet, RI.  Run with the Beavers will have a 10 miles option, a 5 mile option, and a 1/2 mile long fun run for children 12 & under.

I have been trying to get a trail race going on and off for almost 3 years now, but have had issues with area officials allowing us to run on the trails that we want.  I am excited that we were able to work with the park officials at Pulaski Memorial Park, in Chepachet.  The park has great facilities and is very clean.  The course has a great mix of single track, dirt roads, and double track trails.  Some are rocky, some are groomed, and depending on the weather, some may be wet.  It should make for a fun race.

Since Karen and I are both members of the Tuesday Night Turtles, we thought it was important to have a team event as part of the RTB.  So the 10 mile race will have a team competition.  The top 3 runners from each team will be scored cross country style and we will crown ourselves a champion!

So please join us on July 28th for some fun on the trails!
