2021 Saratoga Stryders Fall Back 5 Mile Trail Race

10am EST, Sunday, November 7th, Saratoga Spa State Park (Tentative)

19 Roosevelt Drive, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

It’s that time of year! Set your clocks back, fall back in bed for that extra hour, and emerge bright-eyed and bushy tailed, ready to breathe crisp, autumn air and tackle some serious trails in historic Saratoga Spa State Park.

The Fallback 5 Mile Trail Race course is a combination of hills, ridges and single track, with a few wide trails, paved sections, and grassy areas, showcasing sections of the park some may have never seen before. This is Nature’s original obstacle course at its finest.

Registration is limited


Pre-race gathering, finish, awards, and day of race registration take place at the Saratoga Spa State Park Administration Building.  Rest rooms are also located in the Administration Building.  The race starting line is a short distance north of the finish line.

NOTE: In the interest of safety for all participants, due to the narrow trails on the course, RUNNERS ARE PROHIBITED FROM RUNNING IN THE RACE WITH THEIR DOGS.  The use of portable music devices during the race is strongly discouraged.
