The run will take place in Roosevelt Forest, located in Stratford, CT. The Town of Stratford is very fortunate indeed to be one of the few towns or cities in the nation to have its very own forest. The forest was set up during the depression in the 1930's. It was developed in large part through President Franklin D. Roosevelt's W.P.A. program to provide recreational opportunities for townspeople, and to protect the watershed, wildlife and beauty of this fine example of mixed deciduous forest.
