Event Description

The ONLY short distance trail race in the city! Four miles of real trail running, not bridle paths or gravel roads, hiking trails! This race has many small hills, you’ll for the most part, be running either up or down a hill. This is an exciting race! Get ready to Rock n’ Rolla!

Little known facts about the trails of Forest Park:

The Wisconsinian glaciation molded this land between 20,000 and 10,000 years ago and left the Harbor Hill Moraine, a series of small hills known as “knob and kettle” terrain, including Forest Park. Which means the trails are naturally carved, not manmade like most nyc parks. Come explore and experience the beautiful 100 year old pine grove and longest continuous oak forest in Queens!

The entire course will be marked at appropriate intervals. This course is designed to be a great entry race to get the feel of trail racing for beginners or to knock out a quick time on a challenging course for the more experienced.

This race is dedicated to Pinky the Pacer, the lil white and brown dog with the pink nose who completed several thousand miles of trail running through the woods of Forest Park in Queens. Legends never die.
