Event notes
ABOUT: This race is named in memory of Thom Bugliosi, who died in 1991 at age 32 when he was the top trail runner in the area. Thom loved running trails, and although he never ran this course, we’re sure he’d like it.

The race takes place within Hammond Hill State Forest and consists of a 13K loop that is run twice for the 26K and three for the 42K. The course utilizes both the Finger Lakes Trail and the extensive DEC trail system. The course will be marked with colored ribbons, and intersections will be indicated with orange arrows. These trails are rugged and challenging, but you’ll enjoy the flora, carefully groomed mud, and, due to the lack of leaves this time of year, nice valley views.

Our home base for the race is Camp Earth Connection, a natural campground and retreat center that has cabins, rustic cabins, lean-tos, and tent sites available to rent for that weekend or that evening. Visit for campsite availability. Note that Camp Earth Connection is an alcohol- and drug-free facility—that applies to both the event and any campers.

WHERE: The races start and finish near Camp Earth Connection, a quarter mile down Hammond Hill Road from the public parking lot, whose address is roughly 100 Hammond Hill Road, Freeville, NY 13068. Do NOT follow GPS directions via Harford Road, which is not passable. Instead, make sure to come via Irish Settlement Road. Click the Map button above for the exact location.

WHEN: The 42K race starts at 7 AM. The 13K and 26K races start together at 10 AM. Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your race to pick up your bib number.

REGISTRATION: Online pre-registration is required and is open until 6 PM the night before the race. The race is limited to 150 participants. No day-of-race registration!

FEES: 13K and 26K: $15; 42K: $35. Runners 18 and under may pre-register for free.

POLICIES: No dogs, headphones, or jogging strollers are allowed.
