View 256: Onondaga Nation Trail Run

The Onondaga Nation Trail Run was described by the winner of the 5K event as Old School Cross Country.  The course was completely run in the woods of the Onondaga Nation land south of Syracuse, New York on a warm late November day after Thanksgiving.  The paper birch and other trees on the hills were bare and allowed spectators to watch the runners climb them.

This was the second year for this event which was attended by both young and old.  There was a 1 mile Fun Run which did not include the hill above.  For those runners who like a challenge, put this one on your calendar for 2013.
