Join this group if you'd like to run trails with others in Mansfield and nearby areas. Beginners welcome.
The Mansfield Trail Runners is an affiliate of Willimantic Athletic Club. This move will provide additional protection for the MTR group and its leadership, as well as connecting our running community to the larger running community in the area. As a result of the move, each person who participates in a MTR run will be required to sign a Willimantic Athletic Club waiver. This waiver will cover the runner for one calendar year and will be required to be renewed in December of 2013. MTR runners do not need to become WAC members, though should you wish to become a member of WAC, you will be entitled to discounts on races and other membership perks. Please contact Marc or Rachel for more information about becoming a member of WAC or with questions about this merger. Happy running!
All runners should plan to carry their own water and nutritional support during MTR Meetup events, if needed. Additionally, we STRONGLY encourage runners to carry their cellphone whenever trail running. A lead runner will be identified for each meetup, and s/he will provide his/her cellphone number to all attendees, in case of emergency.
