Started in 2012, Where the Pavement Ends has become one of the most popular trail races in the area. The race winds through the hills and trails of northern Ridgefield, Connecticut, along the Danbury border. Kicking off at Lake Windwing, it traverses fields, rounds the lake, and heads up into Hemlock Hills and dips back to Lake Windwing 4.25 challenging miles later. It's one hour from Hartford, 45 minutes from White Plains, 90 minutes from New York City.  

Racers and spectators park at Ridgebury Elementary, a short walk from Ballfields Park on South Shore Drive, Ridgefield, where the race starts. There is food, water, and post-race entertainment. About 200 compete in the race--the course record is held by Lucas Meyer at 32:27 (2018). Being the last race of summer and the first race of fall, it's the ideal time of year for trail running.

Where the Pavement Ends is the third race in the annual seven-race Trail Mix Series, put on by race directors in Fairfield County and Westcheter County. Those competing in four of the seven races are eligible for age-group prizes and for guaranteed selection from the Leatherman's Loop lottery. See more details at trailmixseries.org
