The Inaugural Conquer the Hills Ultra is set for October 24th 2020 to create a new trail running challenge on The Island. Located in the hidden trails of the Farmingville Hills County Park, these trails on the Ronkonkoma Moraine include plenty of hills to challenge experienced trail runners in a timed race open to runners of any skill level. Profits from this race will support the Farmingville Historical Society. In addition to providing an educational environment, the Farmingville Historical Society provides management and support to the park's trails.
The Conquer the Hills Ultra is a 1.55 mile loop with about 150 feet of vertical gain and 150 feet of drop each loop. Runners will compete to see who can complete the most loops within the race's time limit.
