2014 Connecticut Blue-Blazed Trail Running Series

I’ll be writing much more about this during 2014, but the inaugural edition of the Connecticut Blue-Blazed Trail Running Series is officially launched. There will also be more marketing, including a dedicated Facebook page.

Debbie, the Shenipsit Striders, the series Race Directors, the CFPA team, and I; have all been involved with the creation of this new series. We view this series as a compliment to the venerable New England Grand Tree Trail Running Series, and three of the races (Soapstone Mountain Trail Race, People’s Forest Trail Race, and NipMuck Trail Marathon) are in both series. NipMuck is the oldest Grand Tree race. 2014 will mark it’s 31st year. Soapstone, another Shenipsit Striders event (Debbie is RD), will be 30 this year!

The series kicks off in two weeks with the Bimbler’s Bash. See you there! Click here for the series page.

While I’m promoting 2014 series, if you are local, be sure to also check out our hometown cross-country series, the Bolton Summer XC Series. It’s run on a rugged and beautiful course that is fun for all ages. There is a 50 yard dash for the toddlers, a 1 mile race for the kids, and the 2.6 mile main event for kids and adults.

Our version of the Poggio...after 10 years of waiting, I think we found a new training partner in the household to join @trailrunningmom and me...at least on the easy days. I'll take advantage now since in another 10 years, I'll be the one getting dropped. #horstspikes #cycling @islabikesusa #islabikes #teamhorstsports #boltonheritagefarm #bolton #Connecticut L to R: Places 2, 4, and 3 at the frigid  #BoltonRoadRace We had lots of fun. The best part is that I tower over the crew in this photo! #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #railtrail #vernon #Connecticut @seven_cycles #sevencycles #teamhorstsports Back in #hartford for #ctbizday with many business friends. #smallbusiness is the engine of our economy. @cbia_ @horsteng #horstengineering #familybusiness #manufacturing #aerospace #madeinconnecticut 🇺🇸 Last night, I got to listen to #RickRidgeway describe @patagonia and their mission in his own words as part of the @wornwear College Tour. @yalesustain hosted the event. I wrote a piece for my own blog and explained why I admire the company and how it inspires us @horsteng The restored plaster model of the Genius of #Connecticut stands in the Capitol rotunda. She dates back to 1877. I was here to represent @horsteng and the @cbia_ and talk health care cost containment with our local state senator. I got my points across, but even as we sat and talked, our health insurance costs rose. It happens every second of the very day. #cbia #horstengineering #smallbusiness I'll be back tomorrow for Connecticut Business Day. #ctbizday Early season training on the #railtrail with one member of the #teamhorstsports Junior squad. #hoprivertrail #horstspikes #islabikes #sevencycles #railtrail #hoprivertrail #trailrunning
