Two classic events taking place in Shenipsit State Forest – the Soapstone Mountain 24k and the 6k Jerry Stage Sampler. Both courses cover varying quality dirt roads, unused logging roads, narrow footpaths and a rocky streambed.

6 km Jerry Stage Sampler. The course has a length of 5.86 km. The terrain shares some of the features of the 24 km course.

The courses include a number of steep, rocky, slippery, or otherwise treacherous areas. Though injuries have been few and minor during past races, a serious injury is possible. Because parts of the long course are relatively inaccessible, it is possible that an injured runner might have to wait an hour or more for emergency medical care. Please do NOT enter either race if you are not prepared to accept responsibility for yourself and these risks.

Both races feature computerized timing and results. A delicious vegetarian picnic will follow (a donation of $5 is welcome from those not racing).

Distinctive organic cotton T-shirts are available for $20. Guarantee yours by pre-registering. A limited number will be available for day-of-race registrants.

Free camping is available in the RRRC campground Saturday night for those pre-registered (please email the RD). There are no changing or shower facilities.
