Run with the Beavers

July 14, 2018

Run with the Beavers is a 5 or 10 mile trail race in Casmir Pulaski Memorial State Park in Chepachet, Rhode Island. Each loop of the 5 mile trail features several miles of narrow, technical single track with a few sections of dirt road running, some less technical trails, one big hill, a few bridges and some great views.  There is a surprising lack of beavers.  Gun start, chip timing. 95 runners in the 5 mile, 176 runners in the 10 mile. Grand Prix points determined by age-grading-derived WAVA% value, which equates various distances efforts. PLEASE CHECK YOUR GP POINTS for accuracy.

Hodges Hoedown

July 1, 2018

The Hodges Hoedown showcases the complex trail system of this US Army Corp of Engineers property. The race includes sections that can only (sanely) be power hiked, a few descents that require holding onto saplings, and even a knee deep river crossing. Gun start, manual timing. 59 runners in the 10k, 88 runners in the half marathon. GP pts determined by age-grading-derived WAVA% value, which equates various distances efforts. PLEASE CHECK YOUR GP POINTS for accuracy.
