Experience the rolling hills of the Essex Park trails at the Tour de Essex. Enjoy the trails used for hiking, running, dog walking, and cross country skiing. These trails are expertly maintained throughout the year by volunteers of the Rochester Active Sports Club (RASC).
The approximately 7K trail run will start on the Essex Park entrance road and then head onto the trails. Running surfaces on the race course are mainly grass and dirt with short sections of gravel and asphalt.
This is a low key, low frills race. No race mementos (e.g. shirts) or awards will be provided. Water stops will be on the course. Runners will be timed with results published on the Rochester Track Club and Rochester Active Sports Club web sites.
The entry fee is a very reasonable $10.00 (that's right - only $10!) for online registration through Thursday, October 18. The entry fee for race day registration will be $15. All entry fees from the race will be put towards trail maintenance expenses.
Race day registration will begin at 8 AM at the Essex Park red barn.
The race starts at 9 AM.

Come on out and enjoy a great fall morning touring the Essex Park trails and support the volunteers who maintain the trails at Essex Park and Quarry Hills Park year round.
This race is jointly sponsored by the Rochester Track Club and Rochester Active Sports Club.
