|11.50 Mile Foot
Race: challenging, not for the beginner; four aid
every mile. Start at Main St Gazebo on Sullivan St, then
make a "mad
dash" for 3,000 feet to the entrance of the D & H Canal
Tow Path, a
4 mile scenic and
historic stretch that is flat, fast and enjoyable.
At 4.3 miles, fuel up with "high test" at aid station 1 and get ready to experience what
"intestinal fortitude really is! The time has come to attack the "Roosa Gap", an 800 foot vertical ascent over 1.9 miles. Catch your breath at the top, refuel (aid station 2) then start the "Roller Coaster" - all three miles of it.
Just past 9 miles (aid station 3), get ready for the "big drop", a 2 mile downhill!
Once you reach the valley, everyone will be waiting to cheer you on.
5K Foot Race & Walk: Flat course, a scenic trail along the old D & H Canal Path
8:00-9:30am, Ambulance Corps Building,
Sullivan Street (the main street through town), Wurtsboro.
