Trail Mix Race is one of the longest running and favorite spring trail races in Minnesota! Kick start your running season with one of three great distance options: 50K Ultra (solo), 25K (solo) and 50K team (4-person teams/12.K each runner) on a 12.5K looped course of turf trail in Lake Rebecca Park Reserve. Rolling hills weave runners through prairies and big woods landscapes while offering scenic views of wetland areas, making it a beautiful trail route in one of Minnesota’s premier parks. Race proceeds are donated to Three Rivers Park District’s Adaptive Equipment Fund.
The race route is primarily an equestrian trail consisting of mowed grass and dirt. Spring in Minnesota can bring sun, rain, snow or ice; please prepare accordingly. There will be an unsupervised drop bag area near the start/finish available to store dry socks, shoes and other gear you may want to access during the race.
Four aid stations are staffed by friendly volunteers and include a portable toilet, water, Gatorade, flat soda, cut bananas and small cups of trail mix.
Average high is 59°F; average low is 38°F. Note: for runner safety, the course may be altered due to trail conditions.
