The 2016 Traprock 17k and 50k will be held Saturday, April 16, 2016 at Penwood State Park in Bloomfield, CT.
The Traprock 17 & 50K is a loop course of approximately 10.5-11 miles per loop. There will be two separate races (one (17k) and three loops (50k)). It is a rolling course with 50 % technical single track on the Metacomet Trail. The balance of the course is double-track.

If you have any questions or concerns about your ability to complete this race but would still like to enter, please contact the race director.
