    Want to combine a great trail course, challenges, beautiful scenery, challenging weather and Sasquatch, and you have the 5k de Mayo Trailsquatch Trail Run. A first-time race offered by the Ellicottville-Great Valley Trail Network on the HoliMont Ski Resort. Event drew race participants from two states and the Olean Area Runners group. Participants of all skill levels were welcomed and were lifted to the top of Exhibition Lift by a ski lift for the start gate. The real motivation was just to finish the grueling course, also used for mountain bikes, that wound through the top of the mountain, past two ponds, and then down the side of the mountain, crossing as many as three ski slopes on trails no wider than gutters. Combine that with mud, rocks, roots, obstacles, snow, rain, incredible scenery and everything nature, and you have a challenge worth completing. Not my best time. Race organizers did it right. The course was maped out on Strava: https://www.strava.com/routes/3210210126058181340, and very well advertised: https://www.facebook.com/events/2341442339386945/. Participants were greeted at the base, treated to tacos and cold drinks, and, gathered in the lodge for comradery. In addition to race medals for all, t-shirts and bibs, there were awards for the top finishers. The swag was great but my most favorite reward was the locking carabiner. Worth repeating.
