TrailHeads is again a race sponsor, and the first 250 registrants will receive a free commemorative TrailHeads headband! Early bird registration is going on now and will continue through February 16th. Save $5 off the Race Day entry fee by registering early!

As many of our local runners know, long time Race Director Wallie Jahn passed away last year. As a special tribute, we’re encouraging participants to consider a donation to the Loaves and Fishes Hospitality House in New Milford.  This wonderful organization provided meals and assistance to Wallie during the final months of his life.  Please help us support their work by bringing a non-perishable food item to the start area on Race Day, in honor of Wallie.

Hope to see you on race day!
