Just a little over an hour from the northern suburbs of NYC, in the northwest hills of Connecticut, lies one of the best-kept secrets in trail running around! If you are ready for a new challenge of some awesome trails, then the Steep Rock Trail Series brought to you by Steep Endurance is for you! In cooperation with the Steep Rock Association, the Steep Rock Trail Series gives runners a chance to experience the idyllic trails of the Steep Rock Preserves in Washington, CT. Each preserve and race offer its own sweeping viewpoints, lush forest single track trails and hillsides, babbling brooks and streams, old rail beds, rural landscapes, and of course the ever-present New England fall foliage. With each subsequent race, runners will progress from a 10K up to a Half Marathon.
In the third race of the series, the Steep Rock Half Marathon, runners will get to experience the largest of the three preserves, with it’s amazing mix of single track, rail trails, technical trails, the iconic Steep Rock Tunnel, a trip to the Steep Rock Summit, and three river crossings of the Shepaug River. With nearly 2000’ of climbing and descending, it will be one of the most challenging, yet beautiful half marathons you have ever run!
