NORWAY — The Nomad Trail Race Series kicks into gear at 6 p.m. on June 8 for the fourth year of summer trail runs in Norway.

Races will be held at 6 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month June-October, rain or shine. Series sponsors Café Nomad and the Western Foothills Land Trust are changing the location and the run options to encourage a diversity of abilities and ages. This year the races will be held at Shepard’s Farm Family Preserve 121 Crockett Ridge Road in Norway.

The Full Witt’s End Race will be a five mile out-and-back race run in open fields and through interesting and varied woodland habitats on the newly constructed Witt’s End Trail. The Witt’s End trail is a very enjoyable run. The trail has been machined to accommodate mountain bikers, walkers, and hikers and has gentle slopes and turns as it circumvents Witt Swamp.

The Shepard’s Crook Race will be a two mile loop race run in the fields and on the woods trails in Shepard’s Farm Family Preserve. These are gentle trails with modest slopes.

While the longer races are being run, children and adults not given to running are welcome to participate in a sculpture to sculpture scavenger hunt incorporating the six Bernard Langlais sculptures at Shepard’s Farm.

Registration is $10 for the five mile and two mile races, $40 for the race series.


Onsite registration will open at 5:30 p.m.
