Thom B Trail Runs

Sunday, May 22, 2022 at 7:00am

Hammond Hill State Forest

The race takes place within Hammond Hill State Forest and this year consists of an 8.5-mile loop that is run twice for the 17-mile distance and three times (plus a mini loop) for the 26.2-mile marathon. The rugged, challenging course uses the Finger Lakes Trail and the forest’s extensive DEC trail system to traverse rolling hills. Out in the woods, you’ll enjoy the flora—oaks, beeches, maples, and evergreens—as the plant life will be turning bright green and filling in nicely in mid-May.

There are two aid stations on the course—one midway through the loop, and another at the start/finish for those running the 17-mile or marathon. The 2022 race will continue with last year’s format, with a start/finish adjacent to the Hammond Hill parking lot, adding about 0.3 miles to the traditional loop.

Home base for the race is the field just inside the trail start at the Hammond Hill parking lot across from the Hammond Hill-ton warming hut. Simply park at the main lot and walk up Yellow 1 past the kiosk.

The Thom B Trail Runs are part of the FLRC Trail Circuit, and results are included in the annual Pebblehead/Stonehead/Boulderhead rankings.

This race is named in memory of Thom Bugliosi, who died in 1991 at age 32 when he was a top trail runner in the area. Thom loved running trails, and although he never ran this course, we’re sure he’d like it.


The marathon starts at 7 AM, and the 8.5-mile and 17-mile races start together at 8 AM.
