Running in Central New York

Tortoise & Hare Trail Runs

Saturday, June 02, 2018

Distance: 10K

Time: 9:00am

Location: Buttermilk Falls State Park - Ithaca, NY View Map of Zipcode

Race Notes: Borrowing from the fable, Tortoise & Hare is a race for the slow and the fast—victory lies in finishing. The closest trail race to Ithaca, this is a good introduction to both trail running and local trails, with Buttermilk Falls providing a spectacular backdrop. The 1 mile fun run/hike course is practically flat. The 10K+ course covers beautiful and varied terrain, including the at Larch Meadow Trail, the easy Bear Trail, and the rolling Lake Trail. There is one long, steep hill that climbs 400 feet in half a mile, lending another interpretation to the race name: slow up, fast down. There are three water stops on the course, at roughly 2, 4, and 5.5 miles.
