Spring is coming soon, and that means one thing…TRAILS!
We’ve reduced the prices on 115 pairs of some of our favorite trail running shoes from all of the best brands including Saucony, Inov-8, Salomon, Altra, Merrell, and more. Stop in and grab these great deals before they are gone!
Tripping over roots and rocks? Struggling on hills? Lost your shoe in the mud? Learning The Trails might be the class for you.
This course is designed to improve your trail running and as a result help keep you safe. The classes will have just a few minutes of lecture and discussion followed by short group runs. Runs will pause at different obstacles and challenges to discuss the proper way to successfully navigate them.
This is not a program for brand-new runners. It is a program for experienced road runners that want to learn how to run trails. Participants should be able to run a 5K without stopping. A goal for this program will be to have all runners comfortable running at least five miles on trail so they can participate in Medved Madness on May 3rd in Mendon Ponds Park.
The first Sunday in May is always one of our favorite days of the year. That is the day we celebrate trails with our annual celebration of trails, Medved Madness.
Medved Madness is more than a trail race. It is a trail party with awesome Patagonia tech shirts for participants.
We start with the run. Three different loops that all start and finish at Hopkins Point Lodge in Mendon Ponds Park. You can run all three loops solo for roughly 15 miles or you can form a three-person team and run as a relay. Don’t have a team? You can sign up as a Free Agent and we will create a team for you.
After the run is when the real fun starts. We will have a fully-catered chicken barbecue with all the fixings. Our friends from Sager Beer Works will be delivering some of their best locally-brewed craft beer.
Bring your lawn chair or blanket, maybe a Frisbee, or other picnic game. We’re going to hang out all day and enjoy the blessing of all of our trail family. We sincerely hope you’ll come join the fun.
Sloppy Fools will start and finish at the same lodge as Medved Madness and will cover some of the same trails, but with a much different route. The race benefits the Monroe Community College Foundation to support MCC’s Healthy Hero Summer Camp.
The Healthy Hero Summer Camp offers academic, professional, and physical development for city school students. Camp activities include basketball, swimming, rope courses, cooperative games, math, literacy, and music education. The program is designed to help reduce summer learning loss in students.
After the race there will be s’mores and hot chocolate.
Come out, kick the spring trail season off, and help support a great organization.
Join Medved at The Old Stone Tavern for our St. Patrick’s Day themed scavenger hunt. The event will take you on a search for leprechauns and pots ‘o gold through the South Wedge. Earn points by wearing costumes, finding checkpoints, completing challenges and participating in other completely nonsensical adventures.
Pre-Register your team of 5 or more or show up as a ‘free-agent’ and join a team. Sign up with Mort Nace@firstname.lastname@example.org today!
