The Upton State Forest Trail race runs through the scenic Upton State Forest (surprise!). Part of the MRA series, this is probably the least challenging of their trail races. A slightly over 6 mile loop is run once for the 10.5k and twice for the half marathon. This year the race kicked off with Eric Jacobsen’s impression of Steve Galloway singing the National Anthem. If you weren’t there you missed out! The weather was beautiful for a fall trail run and great for a November day — This year was a beautiful 34 degree day with clear skies. The soup afterward was a great way to warm up!
