Beginning on May 23, six individual trail running races will take place at Sprague Brook Park on Tuesday evenings. Race in four events to count toward the series points or race as few as you like just for kicks-everyone is welcome.
Registration each night starts at 5:30 p.m. at the XC ski hut (follow Dirt Devil signs once inside park). Each race starts at 6:30 p.m. and features 3 to 3.5 mile trail running courses on park trails that include single track, XC ski trails and hiking paths. The races are 100 percent off-road with no pavement.
Enjoy a post-race celebration at the Colden Country Inn just down the street in Colden after each event, featuring food and beverage specials for participants. At each event, a few door prizes will be given out randomly as well.
Awards will be given to overall Male, Female and Masters M/F for the series, plus top three in 10-year age groups. At every race, participants will be handed a Dirt Devil wooden nickel as they cross the finish line.
Races will take place on the following dates: May 23 and 30, June 6, 13, 20 and 27.
The Dirt Devil Series helps support HEART Animal Shelters of WNY.
