Borrowing from the fable, Tortoise & Hare is a race for the slow and the fast, victory lies in finishing. This is a good introduction to both trail running and Ithaca-area trails, while Buttermilk Falls provides a spectacular backdrop. The 10K+ (6.7-mile) course covers beautiful, varied terrain, including the easy Larch Meadow Trail, the semi-technical Bear Trail, and the rolling Treman Lake Trail. There is one long, steep hill that climbs about 450 feet in under a mile, lending another interpretation to the race name, up slow, down fast.
