Rootstock Racing: Run Your Own Adventure Trail Race

  • Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education 8480 Hagys Mill Road Philadelphia, PA, 19128 United States (map)

From our partners at the Schuylkill Center For Environmental Education:

Jump into spring with a trail run through forests and ravines, with a chance to choose your own adventure run as you go.  Runners will begin as they would any other trail race, but at some point, they will encounter a literal fork in the road, marked by enlarged maps which they will have to quickly study. From there, they will choose their path and continue along, only to encounter further options later in the course. All routes will ultimately come back together at the finish. Individual distances will vary slightly depending on runners’ route choice, but all courses will be roughly five kilometers.  Runners will have to make decisions based on the maps they encounter, but the entire course will be marked on the maps and on the ground with colored surveyor’s tape.

For those who are more ambitious, consider taking our Adventure Challenge by running in both races. There will be a one-hour gap between events.
