Sick Trail Race is one of my most favorite races! I stumbled upon it three years ago only because my friend Kelli asked me to join her. She found a flyer and was worried about going alone because she had heard it was held at someone's private home. Well, that is true. The race is hosted by Scott & Ann Sick at their home in Millville, PA. The course runs through their woods and fields. When you're finished running there is a feast and hand-made prizes! The first year I ran (7/14/12), it about killed me! The 4.1 miles took me 52:33. The second year (7/27/13) the race tried to kill me again, thanks to terrifying thunderstorms and torrential downpours! But I did much better time-wise, probably thanks to dodging the lightening bolts! Finishing time was 42:47. This year (7/19/14) I struggled and actually walked some, but still finished in 43:13.

If you like running trails, you really must run this race. Did I mention it's free? That's right, totally free!!! The feast at the end is brought by all us runners, pot-luck style. You will feel like you're at a family reunion. This race truly encompasses what trail running is all about.
