The Catskill Trout Tales Fiver


August 4, 2018 - 10:30am

*** We have decided to reschedule the Catskill Trout Tales Fiver to Saturday, August 4th due to expected heavy rains right at race time tomorrow and unfortunately the bowling alley is still under rehab inside and is not ready for a flood of people fleeing to it when wet and cold.


We will be offering refunds to all of the 75 that had pre-registered or their registration can be transferred to August 4th. Please email Casey Pratt if you want one or the other.


We did make a $500.00 donation to the volunteering beneficiary organization, Margaretville Central School Booster Club yesterday at the bowling alley. ****


The Catskill Trout Tales Fiver is a 5.2 mile run along bits & pieces of the East Branch of the Delaware River - prime trout habitat.


Afterwards enjoy a post race party that includes a BBQ, refreshments, LIVE music and of course, bowling at The Ark Bowl & BBQ, an 8-lane bowling alley located in Arkville, New York - the heart of the Catskills.
