April 17th is the six-month mark until Tackle the Trail 2020! Are you ready to Tackle?
Mark your calendars! Saturday, October 17, 2020. This year, the race has grown to marathon and half marathon distances, open to individuals and up to six-person relay teams (relay teams for marathon distance only). With leg distances varying from 2.1 to 6.7 miles, this race is fit for elite runners and weekend warriors alike!
The half marathon will begin in Brooklyn, CT and the marathon will begin in Windham, CT; both races will end in Putnam, CT at the Hale YMCA with an awesome post-race festival sponsored by Michelob Ultra! Free beer, food, and fun!
Tackle the Trail takes place every third Saturday in October. Organized by the Quinebaug Valley Community College Foundation, Tackle the Trail raises scholarship money for students within the community of northeast Connecticut and beyond. The support of this race allows QVCC students to receive a debt-free education.
