Mt Toby is BACK!

After a year hiatus, the Mt Toby Trail Run will take place on Sunday, October 18th, 2015.

Check back soon for more details and online registration.


The Mt Toby Trail Run is a true trail race classic in Western Massachusetts.  The course is a 14 mile Toby out and back course over fire roads, hiking, and jeep trails.  Runners climb 1900 feet to the summit of 1,269 ft Mount Toby.  Once at the summit, runners tag the base of the fire tower and begin the 7 mile descent to to the finish line.   The course features total climbing of 2300+ feet.

The Toby trails are easy to navigate and the trail conditions are manageable, making Mt Toby Trail Run a great trail race for beginners and seasoned trail runners alike.

The race is part of WMAC’s Grand Tree Series and attracts a great group of runners.  The delicious post-race race lunch is a great example of the strong running community of Western Massachusetts.

Directions:  From exit 24 on I-91, go north on Rts. 5&10 for a couple of hundred yards, then right at the light on Rt. 116 towards Sunderland and Amherst, crossing the Connecticut River.  It is 2 miles to Sunderland.  At the light in Sunderland, turn left (north) on Rt. 47.  Follow this ½ mile, then turn right onto Silver Lane.  Follow this 2/10-mile, then turn left onto Park Road.  Follow this a short distance to the Town Park.  Restrooms will be available at the town park.
