Amherst fundraiser isn't exactly a walk in the woods
The demanding, rugged race dubbed the Joe English Trail Challenge 25K begins in the fields of Freestyle Farm, a private equestrian facility along Mack Hill Road in Amherst.
“There is going to be some very challenging terrain here. The race is in the woods across streams and rock outcrops,” said George Bower, race organizer. “It will be slower pace, and there will be sections that you just can’t run but will have to be hiked — that is part of the fun.”
“The event is really set up as a race against yourself — to see if you can complete the course. We really want people to participate and challenge themselves to do the event, and come back next year after more conditioning and fitness work,” said Bower.
“We wanted to do something unique that would draw a lot of people and businesses and brands,” said Hendrix. “This will be a substantial fundraiser for us to help conserve even more land throughout town.”
The event is ideal for competitive runners and outdoor and fitness enthusiasts, said Bower. Registrations are already being accepted for an early entry fee of $55.
