After the Leaves - THE RACE DATE HAS CHANGED TO Nov. 10. Due to parking lot resurfacing at Minnewaska, we have had to change the date for After the Leaves. All otherrace details are the same. You can get a refund if you already preregistered and can make the new date.
The last (and best in the opinion of the webmaster) Shawangunk Runners race of the season is the After The Leaves on Sunday, November 3. This is a 20k carraige road/trail race around both the incredibly scenic Lake Minnewaska and Lake Awosting. The view from Castle Point has to be seen to be believed. The weather is almost without exception cool and dry. The State Park charges a $8 fee per car. Race is limited to 400 runners and there will be online registration at this link. This flyer gives further information.

Undercliff/Overcliff 182 runners finished the first race in the Summer Series on a surprisingly cool night in the Mohonk Preserve. The 15 minutes of rain before the race brought a welcome relief to the heat we've been having this summer. The race had some fast times on a beautiful course. See you Monday for Lou's Run at the Spring farm trailhead. Results (posted July 13, 2013)
