Sunny skies, highs in the 60’s, dry trails. Perfection. 24 participants, 14 of them completed the entire 31 mile course from Jenny Lane to Rosendale running many miles of gnarly singletrack. The route also took runners through each of the Gunks 4 major rock scrambles, Castle Point, Giant’s Workshop, Skytop Crevice (lemon squeeze), and Bonticou, gaining a total of 4800 ft. ascent. Finishing times ranged from 6:40ish to 7:40ish for the complete course.
Total success for the inaugural year. Thanks to everyone who came out to share a chunk of some of the most challenging (but still runnable), beautiful trails anywhere.
