Old Man Winter Trail Race #1
APPLETON, NY: The Winery at Marjim Manor - Please join us on Saturday January 14, 2023 for the Old Man Winter Trail Race at Marjim Manor. The race is being brought to you by iRun WNY and will take place entirely on Marjim Manor and adjacent property in Appleton, New York. We are planning to use a course that is similar (VIEW MAP) to the one we used for our fall trail run (Approx 3.2 miles) CLICK HERE to learn about the history and legend of Marjim Manor. All participants who register by Tuesday January 3rd at 9am will receive a special edition Old Man Winter embroidered hat. We did order a number of extra hats that will be distributed on a first-come, first serve basis and then an alternate gift item (TBD) will be provided to all participants who signed up after the January 3rd deadline.
We have designed a scenic single loop course that takes place primarily on grass, gravel trails, farm roads, and through the Bittner/Singer apple orchards. There is also a short section of asphalt roadway at the end of the course leading back to the start/finish line.
WEATHER ALERT! Keep your eye on the weather leading up to race day. Property owners will plow all the trails a couple days before the race if needed. Depending on the weather that day, running trails could be drifted and/or snow covered, clear, muddy, frozen, soft, or all of the above. Prepare for the weather and dress appropriately.
