The Shelton Trails Committee announces the 2016 Shelton Trails Marathon. Because this is a summer Olympic year, the Committee has selected a series of 13 trails that add up to the marathon distance of 26.2 miles. This is not a race, but a challenge to complete the 13 hikes within a five and a half month period. Our goal is to introduce Shelton residents to the numerous hiking opportunities in town. Participants will use our form to log each completed trail by listing the date each trail is hiked. The form can be used for up to four hikers. All hikers are on the honor system to fill in their form.
The official kickoff date is June 4, when we will host a guided hike along the Paugussett Trail from Birchbank Mountain to Indian Well, and the end date is November 27.
