Event notes
These classic trail races take place on the beautiful orange- and white-blazed trails through Kennedy State Forest in Virgil, NY. The 15K (8.9 mile) course is a figure-8 that boasts 1,700 feet of climb; the 7K (4.1 mile) course follows the shorter, more scenic loop of the 15K course and features about 700 feet of climb. Both courses have you splashing across a stream and ascending to the rock pile where the famed Monster (of the Monster Marathon) once dwelled.

The courses consist of 50% single-track trail, 30% logging roads, and 20% dirt roads. The trail is well-marked (painted blazes on trees, double blazes at turns) and cleared of brambles. Perhaps the giant fungus of 2015 will return!

Want to make a weekend of it? Come the day before with a tent and you can camp for free by the start/finish at the primitive Hauck Hill campsite. Make sure to bring water.

The Forest Frolic trail runs are part of the FLRC Trail Circuit, and results are included in the annual Pebblehead/Stonehead/Boulderhead rankings.
