Meet at the Mansfield Hollow boat launch on Bassetts Bridge Road. We'll run 4 miles on a loop around the lake. After that, additional mileage can be added. We often add two more miles though several options exist.
Unsafe (storms, potential for flash floods, snow and ice, etc.) weather cancels. Please use your best judgement when evaluating the weather conditions and determining whether to attend.
This is the cornerstone run of the Mansfield Trail Runners. We usually go to BagelOne for breakfast afterwards.
During hunting season, please wear bright colors. Orange clothing is encouraged. Though we run in hunting-prohibited areas only, illegal hunters do exist and we should take precautions.
The boat launch parking area is the second parking area on the left if you are coming from 195. It is identifiable because it is right on the lake. If you parked by a huge field in a paved parking lot, you are not in the right spot. Keep going until you reach the lake and you will see a large gravel parking lot. Park there, by the road. We depart promptly at 8am.
NOTE: We'll ask you to sign a liability waiver before the run. Alternatively, you may print it in advance and bring it the day of the run: http://www.willimanticathleticclub.org/About_WAC_files/2013%20WAC%20Waiver.pdf
