Explore every inch of the nature center with a 10k or 25k trail run! Frost Town Trail Fest is a trail race presented by Ironwood Adventure Works that celebrates the beauty, recreational opportunities, and environmental mission of the Cumming Nature Center.
The routes explore some of the best terrain the Bristol Hills has to offer while giving runners rare access to landscapes neighboring the nature center. Proceeds from the race will benefit the Cumming Nature Center’s environmental and educational programming.
Bring along your family and friends to cheer you on as you finish—there are plenty of trails for them to explore at their own pace during the race, along with a picnic area for rest and celebration after the run.
25k Trail Run | 9am
The challenging 25k course is a single loop that circumnavigates both the Cumming Nature Center and an adjacent property managed by The Nature Conservancy. A steep winding ascent and then descent through historic logging roads initiate 25k runners to this stout cross terrain trail challenge. Next, after traversing through the well-tended Cumming Nature Center Trail system, runners take the trail less traveled across the rugged Rattlesnake Hill ridgeline east of Lake Honeoye. Aid stations will be available at approximately 4 mile intervals for a total of three support stations on the course.
10k Trail Run | 10am
For a quicker and less remote challenge, the 10k course covers the best of the Cumming Nature Center trail system. Less elevation gain and a more runnable course make this a great first 10k or a fast trail loop for seasoned trail runners.
Kids Fun Run | 12pm
Bring your junior trail runners along for a free 1.5 mile kids fun run! To participate, just show up with a parent between 11am and 11:45am to get your race bib. See the registration page for details!
