The Town of Stratford is very fortunate indeed to be one
of the few towns or cities in the nation to have its very
Roosevelt Forest was set up during the depression in the
1930's. It was developed in large part through President Franklin
D. Roosevelt's W.P.A. program, designed to provide jobs for
legitimate public projects. This beautiful 401 acre forest
is part of the town's excellent park system. The park was
established to provide recreational opportunities for townspeople,
and to protect the watershed, wildlife and beauty of this
fine example of mixed deciduous forest. Neatly nestled away,
the forest is some times, well just forgotten.
Now, the forest will be brought to life with the first running
of the FORGOTTEN FOREST ULTRA RUN !
The Ultra run will last 9 hours from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
All runners, joggers and walkers are invited to participate
in this very friendly event. Experience on a trail is mandatory
for safety, so a little practice is warranted. There will
be an award for first, second and third overall and first
male and female in the category of senior/master or 55 years
of age and older. Also, an Ultra medal for anyone participating
for 6 or more hours without more than a single 15 minute stop.
You can run a 10 K, 20K, 26.2 , 50K and more. You must be
at least 18 years of age.
A charitable portion of the proceeds of this race will go
to the Roosevelt Forest Trail Commission, the Town of Stratford
Animal Rescue and the Stratford EMS.
Thank you for your consideration and for your future participation
in making this Stratford event a complete success, since without
your advertising support we, as you, become forgotten.
