Saturday, May 3rd 2014 Allegany State Park's Summit Trailhead - Salamanca, NY 14779
Trail Runners mark your calendars!
The 2014 Allegany Adventure Run kicks off on Saturday, May 3rd 2014 from beautiful and challenging Allegany State Park. Three different course distances to choose from offer one of the most memorable events of the season on the wide, rolling and non-technical trails of the Art Roscoe Trail System inside Allegany State Park. Runners choose from the 6K, 13K or 22K distances in a 100% off-road foot-race that will challenge all. Non-technical in nature but high intensity in elevation changes the Allegany Adventure Run will send you home with screaming quads and that eerie grin only trail runners can appreciate. The Allegany Adventure Run headquarters is the Summit Ski Area inside the Red House section of Allegany State Park. Plenty of parking, terrific facilities and on-site medical help support the annual Allegany Adventure Run.
The start and finish line is the brown gate at the Summit Ski Area in Red House. Water stations on each distance, clear course markings and a fairly priced event help keep trail running alive and kicking in the Western New York area while helping support local causes including the Allegany Nordic Ski Patrol, HEART Animal Shelters and the Allegany State Park Trail Fund. Pre-register to guarantee your place on the starting line or come down on race-day to enter. No-one will be turned away. Custom t-shirts to the first 250 entrants. Fun post-race party, great door prizes, DJ entertainment and a rain or shine event kicks off the trail running season in a beautiful and challenging venue second to few in New York State. A HUGE thank you to our great volunteers, sponsors and entrants for keeping trail running on the map!
Course descriptions: 6K- Starts at 10am and completes a clockwise trek around Sweetwater trail. A terrific introduction to trail running or a fleeting stretch in this amazing setting in a slightly hilly route. 13K- 9:45am start proceeds down Sweetwater Trail, Christian Hollow and Leonard Run turning back on Ridge to the finish. Several water stations keep runners fueled on this challenging leg featuring many climbs and descents at each section deep in the forest trails. A very demanding route that will surely leave a mark on those muscles! 22K- Sweetwater, Christian Hollow and Leonard Run provide an intro into the 22K course that leads down Ridge Run to the lower section of the Art Roscoe Trail System. Runners descend to Patterson Trail where the climb out begins-a 2-mile climbing finish of the almost endless long stretches to the finish line. Truly serene and demanding. Three water stations, on-course marshalling and an incredible canopy of tall trees help make this course a world-class acheivement for those up for the challenge. Leave some fuel in that tank and see how you stack!
