Secret Mystery Winter Trail Run 5 Mile Eagle Trail Run and 2 mile Turkey Group Run Sat. Jan. 6, 2018

Press release:
Secret Mystery Winter Trail Run

   Sat. Jan. 6, 2018  10:17am 
Location: Secret Mystery wooded area North Brunswick/ East Bruns, South B
       Please bring a can food donation for St. Matthews Edison Food Bank.
More powerful than the Mud runs, Warrior Runs and Swamp devil runs.  Tired of the same old neighborhood roads, traffic, bad drivers? Join the off-road runners for a great and unusual training run.  Run in the woods and trails. Hashing is not a race but a non-competitive group run which follows an off-road course laid out with baking flour. If you like trail running without the competition of a formal race, this will be a fun switch for you. This is a complex course through woods, grass, swamp and marsh.  Wear old running shoes                       
    Only $20.00
