Description

2011 Mohegan Park Thursday Night Fun Runs:

  • Weekly summer 3 mile fun runs starting just south of the Pavilion that is just south of the center of the park.
  • Course Info

  • The 3.1 mile course is slightly to moderately hilly, mostly on trails.
  • Race starts on pavement for first quarter mile, then heads into woods.
  • Two loops in woods, one steep hill on each loop. (about 1/10th mile on in between loops)
  • Return to pavement after second loop, and run about a quarter mile down hill, and head into woods again at about the 2 mile mark for another larger loop that goes over a small wooden bridge that can be slippery when even a little bit wet so be careful.
  • It then comes to a clearing and loops around a small pond before heading back, with a fairly steep hill on the trail back to the main road. (final 2/10ths on pavement)
  • Once on the main road, turn right, then a quick left onto a paved trail, over a paved bridge, and then left on paved road about 70 yards to finish.
