Supporting the Greenbelt While You Run
Your participation and race fee helps support the not-for-profit Greenbelt Conseravancy mission to offer environmental education initiatives for children of all ages and abilities. The Conservancy, which works in partnership with NYC Parks, also leads trail maintenace and beautification projects that help keep the Greenbelt trail system in great hiking and running condition.
About the Course
Start/finish is by the federal style David LaTourette House. The course begins on the rolling fairways and takes you off into the surrounding Greenbelt trails – rustic and hilly. We run in all weather conditions and, based on past race experiences, have found it can be done! This race will be professionally timed culminating in an awards ceremony. Refreshments and race appropriate apparel are provided for runners.
The first Cold Feat 10K was held in 2010 and a great time was had by all (despite the nearly two-feet of snow accumulation from several previous storms, and frigid temperature). A group of more than 100 hardy runners endured to cross the finish line with and claim bragging rights. Subsequent races have taken place in all kinds or weather, and we continue to have loads of fun.
Race results and photos will be posted here and on the Greenbelt Conservancy’s Facebook page on on Run and Shoot Photography Facebook page.

The course was awesome. It had a good mix of flat straightaways, steep uphills, and big downhills. It was extremely well-marked with yellow tags on the trees and an occasional arrow pointing us in the right direction. Despite not seeing the runner ahead of me for parts of the race, I never missed a turn (which always seems to happen to me during trail races).
There were a TON of volunteers along the course – ensuring we were following the right course, giving us helpful pointers for the next stretch of trails (rocky, slippery, etc), taking a lot of awesome pictures, and cheering for us. And even though it was a small, local, short trail race, there was an awesome table of water, gatorade products, and fuel options just past mile 3. It was one of the best and most fun races I’ve done in a long time.
I rate this a”ten,” I mean 5 stars! Very well organized, great course, lots of encouraging marshalls… helps makes Staten Island a contender in the trail race category…
Well planned, challenging course. It was a great experience overall. Thanks!
What a challenging course! Great volunteers, great trail, great participation! A fun, tough trail run with a great group of runners!
