Three-Mile Trail Race

DSC04612.JPGEighty-four finishers ran the Eastern Outdoors Club's Fifth Annual Three-Mile Trail Race on April 9 at Mansfield Hollow State Park. The event attracted serious runners as well as recreational runners and families from all around the state of Connecticut, and a few from out of state. Twelve children, five years old and younger, participated in the event's first children's race, which was co-sponsored by the Child and Family Development Resource Center. More than 25 students volunteered at the race, which benefits the Outdoors Club's initiative of "No Student Left Inside."

"It's a rare combination of the university and local community working together." John Kelley, National Distance Running Hall of Fame inductee, Boston Marathon and Mount Washington Road Race winner and Olympic Marathoner, started the race.
