|In the spirit of our Muddy Watters Trail Series,you can expect to cover much of Bloomer Park.
But, rather than running down various steep
decents, you’ll sled down them. Some of which
may not actually be considered sledding hills. But they’re steep nonetheless. You’ll be racing
with your sled the entire time, less the final
drill. While you’re completing it, one of our
volunteers will chuck it off the back side of the
hill and down into the woods. You’ll have to go
down and retrieve it to finish the race. Some may be close, some may be far and some may even be in the trees. But, that’s your problem, not mine… have fun
|LOCATION: Meet at the Stone Shelter at Bloomer Park 345 John R. Road, Rochester Hills, Michigan 48306. Get there by 8:30 if you’re already registered, 8:15 if you’re not.
Course distance may vary depending on how lost you get. Either way, plan to cover between 3 – 4 miles. Though it’ll be on the “trails”, they’ll most likely be covered with snow, dress accordingly. You MUST bring a sled, preferably a light one, you’ll be running with it the entire time. You’ll go to various locations in the park and hit as many of the “sled points” as you can without breaking anything. Helmet may not be a bad idea. Example – several sleds came back broken last year.
Free to any kids that show up with their folks. This is a “mini” kids event, probably up to 8 years old or so but typically a little younger. Very short, very fun and a great way to get them involved in something that their folks dig too.
None. Come dressed to run and sled. Gotta pee? Find a tree.
