Mohican Buckle Run

Mohican Buckle Run Saturday

 Rob Powell, the Race Director of "Forget the PR" 50K had sent out the invite for the "Buckle Run" at Mohican-bring your buckle to show, purchase a brand new Mohican Trails map and run some different trails at Mohican.

There was quite a good turn out for the run.  $240 dollars was raised for the Mohican Trails Club.

The sale of maps provides funds for MTC to purchase materials for trail improvement projects.   New bridges, walkways and the Lyons Falls Stairs Project have been completed by the Mohican Trails Club using funds raised both through map sales, grants and assistance from the Mohican State Park and State Forest agencies. 

The new map is fabulous!

Ron and I started off together, up Hog's Hollow Trail.  We got to the Fire Tower, and I told Ron my plan was to go "old school" and follow the Red/Green OLD Mohican 100 Trail...which are just the blue/red bridle trails.  Ron agreed to go with me, and we had a great time running together.

It was great weather for twenty miles on the trails.  For August at Mohican, it was a low humidity day.  Rob had water stashed at various points around the forest/state park, we availed ourselves of the water!
