The Trail Mix. Should you trail run, mountain bike, or both? The Trail Mix offers a chance to mix it up on the trails at The Greens in Willowsford! Choose a 5K, 10K, or half-marathon or a total endurance mountain bike race where solo bikers or teams with the most laps take the prize. You can do one discipline or two. Depending on your stamina, taste for adventure, and skill level, the choice is yours. (Stick around for the next day, and then tackle the Willowsford Tenderfoot Adventure Race to round out your weekend of adventure.) You may know from our Spring Thaw Trail Series and last year's Trail Mix that The Greens has moderately technical trails suitable for beginners through expert trail enthusiasts. Open fields and woods, tight single track, and gravel double track provide a full range of surfaces to keep it interesting. Any Trail Mix worth its salt has the perfect balance of irresistible nuts, good-for-you chunks, sweet bits, and morsels to savor. The Trail Mix brings it. www.adventureenablers.com/the-trail-mix
