Froggy Five Mile
Facebooktwitterredditmail

5 miles of trails offering a most rewarding view of the Hudson River and Adirondacks as a reward for ascending Dippikill peak. With a post race BBQ and low-key but fun atmosphere, you’re sure to enjoy it!

Course Descriptions 
The course has a ‘little bit of everything.’ This includes wide trails and single-track terrain. Flat sections, a half mile steep uphill to a mountain peak, and everything in between. There are rocks and roots, there is grass and dirt. We invite all types of athletes to join us but would strongly encourage that this event not be your first time on trails nor first time doing 5 miles.

Directions
656 Dippikill Road Warrensburg, NY 12885

Take I87 (Northway) to exit 23 for Route 9 North. Follow 9N 5 miles through Warrensburg, turning left onto Route 28. Continue 5 miles until you cross the Hudson River and railroad tracks. Then turn left onto Glen Creek Road, continue 3 miles, you will cross a bridge. A quarter mile later, turn left onto Dippikill Road and cross a second bridge. Parking is a mile up the road on the right.

Event Amenities and Awards
Giant frogs on the course! A beautiful tour of the Adirondacks. A full BBQ after the race! We’ll fill you up with burgers and dogs after the race. Yes, we’ll have some vegan options too. There will also be a variety of other foods available. We recognize the first male and female to finish, but the reward for all is the experience.
