For real trail enthusiasts, the Trail Dawgs Athletic Club will host the annual Triple Crown trail races on April 26th at the Walter S. Carpenter Recreation Area of White Clay Creek State Park, off New London Road (Rt. 896) in Newark. “Unique” only scratches the surface as a description of this event. Just ask organizer and CRR John Mackenzie how much fun these off-road races are.
You can run any of these races individually or participate in the Triple Crown (half, 10K, and 5K) either individually or as part of a three-person team. Proceeds benefit local homeless shelters. See the TrailDawgs website for details.
Here are the start times:
7:30 a.m. – Triple Crown Half-Marathon
7:40 a.m. – Delaware Trail Marathon (two loops of the half-marathon course)
10:00 a.m. – Triple Crown 10K
11:15 a.m. – Triple Crown Human Race 5K Run/Walk
