Friends of Trailside
Last year many runners who signed up for the Raven Rocks Run joined online at the same time as members of the Friends of Trailside Museum and Ward Pound Ridge Reservation when they registered for the race. The memberships will be for the calendar year 2018 so new and returning members get a full year of benefits.
The Friends of Trailside is a 501(c)3 organization is dedicated to promoting a better appreciation and understanding of the natural world and the relationship between people and the land. Through its support of the Trailside Nature Museum, operated by the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Conservation of the County of Westchester, the Friends provide financial and volunteer aid for exhibits, school, and education programs. For more information on the Friends group — including how to join — click here: http://friendsoftrailside.org/
We got requests for Raven Rocks hats last year — and this year we are offering them for sale when you register! They are embroidered cotton baseball caps. We placed an order for a limited number of these caps — so order yours ASAP to guarantee availability.

Trail Mix Series
The 2017 Trail Mix Series results to date are posted here: http://trailmixseries.org/trail-mix-standings/.
We completed the first two races in the 2017 Trail Mix Series — the Leatherman’s Loop and A Mild Sprain — in the spring. Two more Trail Mix races are in September: Pavement Ends 9/17 and Sarah Bishop 9/24. October we feature Run The Farm on 10/22.
Sunday Run group
We have a dedicated group of trail runners who meet every Sunday morning at 8am (http://sundayruns.org) to run trails in and around northern Westchester and occasionally beyond. All year round — all paces — all welcome! We never leave anyone behind and we encourage new trail runners to try out the trails.
Many of our regular sunday runners are race directors and volunteers for the Trail Mix and many other local races. It is a very fun and welcoming group. Our group runs include course checks for many local races including the “Looper Bowl” running of the Leatherman’s Loop course on Super Bowl Sunday (photos). We also held a winter group run of the Raven Rocks Run course called the “Raven Lunatic” — photos from that run are here.
We hope you can join us for the 2017 Raven Rocks Run!
