Tug Hill Soggy Sneaker 5K

April 24, 2021
9:00 am

Reservations Required

** The deadline to register for this event is Saturday, April 17th**

Dust off your sneakers and join us for the Tug Hill Soggy Sneaker 5K trail race on Saturday, April 24th at 9:00 am at the Joseph A. Blake Wildlife Sanctuary in Rutland.

This challenging trail race consists mostly of single-track wooded trails that will take you across many streams and wildlife areas. You will traverse foot bridges, log ladder bridges, and water crossings while gaining over 345’ of elevation. As the location is an active wildlife sanctuary, expect terrain that accommodates wildlife habitat. Held in late April, this race could be mostly snow covered, or wet and leafy spring mud trails (that’s part of the excitement)!

The Race will begin at 9am, and will follow in waves every 10 minutes (10 runners per wave) as to accommodate social distancing guidelines. There is no time limit and this course is walker friendly. While we love your furry friends, please leave them at home on race day. Virtual participation is welcome. All registered runners both virtual and in person will receive a custom Tug Hill Soggy Sneaker pint glass.

If you are an Employer or a Team Sponsor please send a list of the names, addresses and phone numbers of your team members to along with a check made payable to Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust to P.O. Box 6063 Watertown, NY 13601 rather than registering online.
