We are super excited to be the "Official Podcast" of the Twisted Branch Trail Run!
As many listeners know, this race is very special to me, the Rochester running community and is setting up as a premier ultra in the Northeast region. I consider this a huge honor and I'm proud to be associated with such an amazing race and partnering with such an excellent Race Director in Scott Magee.
Twisted Branch Trail Run is a 100K Ultra which runs the Bristol Hills Branch of the Finger Lakes trails starting in Ontario County Park and depositing runners on the shores of Keuka Lake in the town of Hammondsport. The trail is made up of single track, logging roads, groomed trails, dry stream beds, abandoned roads, dirt roads & paved roads. While it starts in one, be certain this ain't a stroll through the park. You will be challenged from start to finish of this. You will also be rewarded for your efforts with some of most breathtaking views of the Finger Lakes region.
The 2017 Twisted Branch will take place on August 19th.
We have a Twisted Branch Preview episode just like we did last year (009: A Roving Party), but this year it includes Race Director Scott Magee in a round-table discussion guests (Dan Ostrander, Mike Meynadasy and Laura Howard) who have ran or volunteered in the past or who are planning to run it for the first time.
And we’re pretty sure we’re just scratching the surface of the cool things we’ll do together!
So yeah, let's get Twisted!
