“Run The Farm is a trail race at Muscoot Farm. It features farm road, singletrack, and steep climbs.”— Rob Cummings
Featured Race - Oct 20, 2019
There's about a 1 mile gradual climb until the trail comes out onto a small meadow trail. It quickly ducks back into the woods for another half mile or so before coming out to a larger and longer meadow section. The course takes the White Trail at an intersection about 2/3 of the way along the meadow (the Yellow Trail veers left and is a shortcut back to the parking area if needed).
At the end of the second meadow, the trail turns into the forest again and goes over some rolling terrain before heading up a hill/cliff edge. The White Trail stays singletrack this whole time. At about mile 3, the course heads downhill and then turns 180 degrees uphill onto the section known as "Godino's Grind" which takes runners up a steep, 0.3-mile section back to the Yellow Trail.
After a bit of a flat section, the Yellow Trail comes to the Blue Trail and heads downhill (still yellow). At the pond, the course takes a 90-degree left and heads along the dirt farm road back to the gazebo area. The course heads through the "Pumpkin Meadow" and makes a 180-degree turn to rejoin the gazebo meadow trail and heads back on the original route towards the farmyard. The homestretch passes the horses, cows, sheep, finally ending at the duck enclosure.
