TA’s 32nd Annual Woods Trail Run Oct. 7, Volunteers Needed
September 27, 2023
On Saturday, October 7, Thetford Academy will host the 32nd Woods Trail Run, a truly unique TA event that for many participants and spectators, is the most-anticipated cross country event of the season.
The event, founded by TA parent and former board member Dan Grossman, is well known for many things: great music, great food (shout out to the Thetford Academy Alumni Association), great energy, and great people. Of course, the Woods Trail Run is also known for its difficult 5K course, the Dan Grossman Woods Trail, designed by former Olympic biathlete John Morton. The course winds through TA’s forested campus–beautiful, and with hills like “Morty’s Monster” that challenge even the most accomplished runners.
For the Thetford community, the event is an annual gathering of neighbors and a reunion of friends. The volunteer roster is long and includes veterans that have served the event for decades. This year, we ask for your help to make this iconic race a success. Interested in being a part of this special event? Contact TA’s athletic director Bri Barnes to volunteer. We hope to see you on October 7!
