5K Headlamp Trail Run by CLIF
This annual 5K Night Trail Run Presented By CLIF will offer a whole new twist to your running.
At dusk the stretch team will come out and get you started, as the sun goes down and your headlamps (REQUIRED) go on. As night falls, it's ready set go for 5 kilometers on the trails of the Staten Island Greenbelt.
After you finish kick back with CLIF Bars and water, then head to the stage in the woods and enjoy a live concert from the very awesome Bandits on the Run with brews from Sierra Nevada.
Best 5K ever? Probably.
