This fun trail run includes a Mini Marshmallow 1 mile kids run age 11 & under, 1 mile hike, 5K run & walk and 10K trail and a half marathon run along the park's scenic trails. There will be chip-timing for the 5K run,10K run & Half Marathon race with the help of Tortoise and Hare Race Management timing company.
The goal of this event is to introduce people to the state park and to raise funds to support ongoing and future Friends' projects at the park. You will run along scenic Mirror Lake, near sandstone cliffs, up and down steep hills (did we mention the hills?) and to the finish line where you can enjoy post race food and beverages including s'mores around a campfire, making for a truly unique running experience! The family friendly 1 mile hike will take you on a loop through the woods ending at the post race area where you can enjoy s'mores too!
The Friends of Mirror Lake State Park is a non-profit that is organized for the charitable and educational purpose of supporting and assisting Mirror Lake State Park. Some of the many projects that the Friends group helps with include the naturalist program, concerts in the park and candlelight ski and hike events. Future projects also include trail maintenance and development and accessibility improvements throughout the park. Funds raised during the fun run will stay at Mirror Lake State Park and help with these projects.
