West River Trail Run provides three options for participation, 11 Miles of Trouble, 3-leg Relay, or the 5k. All three options are great for any skill level! We ask no dogs. If you would like to push a stroller, the 5K or the first leg of the race is best. Please see below for course descriptions.
11 Miles of Trouble Course Description: Starting at the South Londonderry Depot the course follows the West River for 11 miles, finishing in Jamaica State Park. The old railroad track makes for flat, woodsy terrain for the first 4 miles. Hitting the Winhall Campground around 4.5 miles, you'll travel for __ miles on the campground road, across the bridge to the opposite side of the West River. After pushing through the campground you'll rejoin the railroad track through the woods. Watch your step with rocks, trees and leaves! Don't forget to look up as you pass through Angel Falls! Traverse through the woods, up, up, up to meet Ball Mountain Dam around mile 8. Less than 3 miles to go after the switchbacks down the dam. Enjoy the last few miles, on the old railroad track once more to finish the race at Jamaica State Park!
3-Leg Relay: The first runner will start at the South Londonderry Depot, run on the old railroad track, and woodsy terrain for the first 4 miles. They will meet their second team member at the Winhall Campground water stop. The second runner will take over running from the end of the campground all the way to Ball Mountain Dam. They will enjoy a smooth run through the woods and across Angel Falls. The third, and final runner, will start out hard taking on the switchbacks of the Ball Mountain Dam. They will finish the last miles on the old railroad tracks and into Jamaica State Park!
5k Trail Race: The 5k is an out and back starting in Jamaica State Park. Runners will enjoy the woodsy scenery following the West River to their turn around point. Listen for the cheers from the water stop volunteers and get ready to book it back to the park!
