Highland Forest 1-2-3 Trail Run

Sat May 30, 2020 Fabius, NY 13063 US Directions
2020 Highland 1-2-3 Cancelled Due to the Coronavirus Situation

The 2020 Highland 1-2-3 is cancelled due to the Coronavirus situation. I got word today that all Onondaga County Parks have cancelled Special Use Permits which has forced this cancellation. We appreciate the runners who have registered early and they will receive a refund. The Highland 1-2-3 is a small, no frills race designed to get runners out on the trails for a nice run, some comaraderie and great food at little cost. As such, no registration money has been spent yet so this is not going to hurt the Chargers financially.

WARNING: It is possible to sprain ankles, break bones, and encounter wildlife and insects such as black flies and/or bees. Carry medication if you are allergic. Trail running requires agility of foot and the ability to keep one eye on the trail and the other on the blazes (markers). Some will get lost momentarily. If there are no blazes in front of you, go back. You may encounter vehicles on the dirt roads and at crossings.

TRAIL CONDITION: The course is about 95% on hiking trails and 5% dirt roads. The trail is well marked (blazes on trees, and turns are marked).

REST ROOMS: There are rest rooms in a separate building near the Community Pavillion. No shower facilities at the park.

REFRESHMENTS: Minimal support will be provided on the course. Carry hydration and fuel as you require. One water stop is planned at ~5 miles and the Start/Finish area will have water and fuel available. depending on volunteers, more support may be available but do no count on this. After the run, enjoy food and beverages at the Community Pavilion.
