    This is another one of the dirt cheap trail races put on by Yellow Jacket Racing. These are again low key, midweek 4 to 6 miles races held on trails throughout the Rochester area. This one was in Webster Park which is the same park where they held the Cabin Fever trail race last February. This race had a rolling start from 5pm to 6pm. Since they original planned it that way they kept it rolling but you were allowed to stay and hang out after you finished unlike the first one. This time they didn’t have packet pick up at the store and you had to arrive by 5:45 to get your packet first. I was nervous about making it on time since Webster Park is the furthest of the races from my work and I usually get out around 5. As I went to my car after work to head to the race I realized I forgot my trail shoes (luckily I was wearing sneakers). I thought about stopping home to get them but wasn’t sure I would have time and didn’t want to miss this race since I am trying to do 100 races this year so decided to just run the race carefully. Packet pick-up was easy at the park and the rolling start low stress although anti-climatic. This race was chipped time unlike their last 2 trail races which I like better. There is no swag because these races are dirt cheap. The weather tonight was back to being cool and grey which is so much better for running than hot and sunny. The first mile or so of this race was relatively easy trail. Not a big deal I didn’t bring my trail shoes. Then it got very technical oops I should have remembered them. The next about 4 miles were full of mud and roots and logs to climb over. There was even a creek crossing which made my poor road shoes so dirty. Had to walk a lot of this to avoid slipping. This actually wasn’t that hilly for a dirt cheap race. It had about half the elevation gain of Mendon Mauler. The mud and logs were the bigger obstacle which I actually think is more fun than ridiculous hills. Although I was super slow both races. The park was pretty and I enjoyed running and hiking there though I think Mendon and Durand Eastman are prettier. The race was a little long at closer to 5.5 miles. The end was just cruel. It was a really steep climb to the finish line. At the finish line you are cheered on by the RD and get your bag of goodies and water and non-alcoholic beer. The goodies were the same fruit snacks, chocolate chip cookies and Lays potato chips I’ve gotten at the last few races. I’m kind of sick of these snacks but understand it is cheaper to buy in bulk. I hope they mix it up at Shoreline this Saturday and give us something different lol. My time for this race was slow since I “ran” it very carefully but eh I was over 20 minutes faster than the Cabin Fever race so that’s a win. Overall a fun, low key but tough trail race. Looking forward to the next one!
