Sloppy Fools 4-Mile Trail Run

Sat. 31 Mar, 2018 11:00 am

It's the day before April Fools Day so we need to have a little fun! Come join us for a 4 mile race through the trails of Mendon Ponds Park. Since this is Mendon Ponds Park in early spring you can expect to see a good amount of mud. Mud is fun and good for you. Embrace it and run fast. After the race we'll serve you warm beverages and s'mores to make you happy.

The Sloppy Fools 4-Mile Trail Run benefits the Monroe Community College Foundation to support MCC’s Healthy Hero Summer Camp. The Healthy Hero Summer Camp offers academic, professional, and physical development for city school students. Camp activities include basketball, swimming, rope courses, cooperative games, math, literacy, and music education. The program is designed to help reduce summer learning loss in students.

The first 100 registered runners will receive a custom Sloppy Fools Trail Run shirt. Hoodies are available for an extra fee. Sign up today while the prices are at their lowest. 

Groove Balanced Wellness will provide s'mores for all the runners after the race.

There will be a raffle after the race including a pair of trail running shoes provided by Saucony. You must be present to win any raffle prizes.

In future years we will host the race on April 1st. We did not want to mess with your Easter plans this year.
