_ The 2022 Olde Girdled Grit Trail Run:
*** 2022: NEW START AND FINISH LOCATION***
This year, on Saturday, February 26, 2022, the OGG Trail will take place from Parkside Elementary School, part of the Riverside School District. The course will be very similar to years past, but we will NOT utilize the ELC and run the 2 miles on Rt 608 to Skok Meadow. For the safety of our runners, we have decided to change the course to eliminate that section of the course. We will still be running Skok Meadow and Girdled Road Reservation. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer a 50K distance.
*** PACKET PICKUP ***
Date and time to be determined closer to race date.
