Description:

Calling all Princes and Princesses :
Welcome to the gateway of CT running ! A great first ultra experience or for training for a summer 100 miler. Location: the Town of Stratford is very fortunate indeed to be one of the few towns or cities in the nation to have its very own forest. Roosevelt Forest was set up during the depression in the 1930’s. This beautiful 401 acre forest is part of the town’s excellent park system. The park was established to provide recreational opportunities for townspeople, and to protect the watershed, wildlife and beauty of this fine example of mixed deciduous forest. Neatly nestled away, in North Stratford, the forest will be brought to life with the running of the fifth Enchanted Forest Ultra!
The Ultra run will last 6 hours from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. All runners, joggers, hikers and walkers are invited to participate in this very friendly event; do as many miles or hours, as you wish. Experience on a trail is mandatory for safety, so a little practice is warranted. There will be an award for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Female and 1st, 2nd and 3rd Male; also 1st Female and 1st Male in the category of senior/master or 50 years of age and older with most miles completed. Also, an Ultra medal for anyone participating for 4 or more hours without any stop over 15 minutes. You will travel over a single and double track trail with some elevation on a circuit of 2.3 miles (note: subject to change per CDC). Pizza at noon (again subject to change of no open foods per CDC). Every hour: H20 and Hydration and Gels! You must be at least 18 years of age. A charitable portion of this race will go to the Roosevelt Forest Trail Commission, the Stratford EMS. A very important thing to note is this is limited to only 70 participants, so register quickly and reserve your spot to be “enchanted” by the forest. Register early and save, however it is non-refundable because of cost endured and to keep the integrity of the race. This ultra is part of the Roosevelt Forest Ultra Trail Race Series. Remember to look for the pixies, trolls and unicorns !
