Old Man Winter Trail Race #1
APPLETON, NY: The Winery at Marjim Manor 
- Please join us on Saturday January 16, 2021 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 3.3 miles) CLICK HERE to learn about the history and legend of Marjim Manor. All participants will receive a special edition Old Man Winter embroidered hat. Register online by Friday January 8th and we will guarantee to have your hat waiting for you on race day. If you register after that date you may have to pickup your hat at Stuart Sports in Lewiston or pay for shipping.

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. Race organizers will drive farm equipment, UTV's, or snow machines on snow covered trails if needed on race morning. 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. CLICK HERE to view iRun WNY safety protocol during Covid.

We have decided to limit the total number of race participants to 50 maximum runners per wave and will offer two waves (SEE BELOW) on Saturday. Each participant will start & run individually to allow for proper social distancing on the course and to comply with state guidelines.
