Bridle Trails State Park

  1. Winter Running Festival

    January 11, 2020, 1:30 PM - January 12, 2020 @ Bridle Trails State Park

    All runners will use the same 5.2-mile loop of trails. Some sections of the trail are rough, rutted, or muddy, so please watch your footing and expect to get wet and dirty. It will get dark under the forest canopy pretty quickly after sunset (4:40 p.m.). If there is a good chance you’ll be on the course after that time, please bring a headlamp with enough battery life to get you to the finish!

    The trail will be congested after the start until runners spread out. Maintaining a sporting and cooperative attitude toward other runners will keep things fun for everyone. There are a few narrow stretches of trail, but the route is wide enough for careful passing. If you are overtaking another runner and wish to pass, please announce your approach to alert the other runner; if you are being overtaken, please allow the overtaking runner to pass when possible.

    Please respect proper trail etiquette when encountering equestrians.

    January 6, 2020 - March 27, 2020

You must have some experience in hand tool woodworking, finer machine work and basic design before taking this class.
