Tackle the Trail™ Announces the Addition of a 10K Run to
Celebrate Ten Years of the Race

In recognition of ten years of Tackle the Trail™, the race will now offer a 10K run option, in addition to the marathon, ½ marathon, relay, and TackleJR (a half-mile run open to children ages 2 – 12 years old in partnership with Northeast Opportunities for Wellness) distances. This will allow more runners to experience the point-to-point trail race from Windham, CT to Putnam, CT on Saturday, October 21, 2023. 

Monique Wolanin, QVCC Director of Institutional Advancement and Tackle the Trail™ race director stated, “We are proud to celebrate this milestone year and excited about our future growth too. Since 2014, we have raised $500,000 for local students at Quinebaug Valley Community College. The race has welcomed runners from 25 states and 3 countries to Northeast Connecticut. Wolanin added, “Tackle the Trail’s success is truly a team effort. It would not be possible without the support of 150 volunteers, sponsors, partners, and runners. Year after year their commitment of time, energy, and resources to our Unique Race in an Amazing Place is overwhelming. The 10K run, in honor of our 10th birthday, rounds out a stellar lineup of options for 2023. This will be our biggest and best Tackle yet!”

Runners are encouraged to REGISTER now. The race will sell out.
