The Norfolk Land Trust 5K and 10K Trail Races will be held virtually from Saturday, September 12 – Sunday, September 20, 2020. It was a tough decision but the race organizers feel it is the best course of action to help stop the spread of the virus.
We will also be offering a sliding scale registration model. The race organizers understand that our community has faced hardships due to the pandemic. It is because of this that we will be taking a “pay what you can” approach. Please select the registration fee that you feel comfortable with. The Norfolk Land Trust trail race is a community celebration of our local trails and should be accessible to all.

Virtual Race Details:
Run or walk the courses at Barbour Woods, 31 Lovers Lane, Norfolk, CT or wherever you like.
Explore the established 5k or 10k course on your own! If you are able to run your race on the beautiful trails of Norfolk please see the course map in the event photos. Maps will also be located at the Barbour Woods trailhead.
Or create your own route based on where you feel the most comfortable – trails, roads, or even treadmill. When enjoying the outdoors, the Norfolk Land Trust asks that racers follow the social distancing guidelines for the health and safety of all, in alignment with the state orders.
Registration for the virtual race will remain open until noon on 9/20.
Once registered you can run/walk your course anytime between sunrise on 9/12 and sunset on 9/20.
Results will be entered through self-reporting on Ultrasignup (see the “Record Results” button up top). You can do that via this website or through reminder emails that will be sent out periodically. The deadline for reporting your results is 11:59pm on 9/22.
Everyone who registers for the 2020 trail races will receive a commemorative sticker!
