Perfect temperatures, low humidity and a slight breeze all followed by a beautiful sunset. I’m not sure we could have asked for a better June evening at Minnewaska last night for the Summer Solstice 14K Trail Run. We had another record turnout with 361 total runners and Minnewaska did an amazing job making sure everyone got parked. We hope you all had a fantastic evening as we all did as well. Just want to give a huge thank you to all the volunteers who make the race possible.
Pictures were taken but it’ll take a little while for those fine photographers to go through and edit the pictures. I’ll add links to the 2016 Races page once they are up and try to put out another post about it.
If you enjoyed running this type of course we have our Summer Cross Country Series starting on the 11th of July. A series of 4 races plus a fun run ranging from 3 to 4.7 miles at Mohonk Preserve & Minnewaska on Monday Evenings. If you’d like to come please pre-register to make things easier for both yourself and volunteers each night.

At the race last night Lauren Voorhes from the Alzheimer’s Association was handing out flyers for a possible entry into the NYC Marathon if you join their team and fundraise. Please find more information here (MarathonFlyerRevised) if you are interested.
Thank you again to everyone and looking forward to seeing many, if not all, of you at the Summer Series races.
