About This Activity

The Ericson Lake Corporation proudly presents the first annual Trail Mix Fun Run to be held on Saturday, July 23rd, 2016 at Lake Ericson, located one mile south of Ericson, Nebraska. 


The Trail Mix Fun Run is a 5K for walkers and runners of all ages and levels.  With the rolling Sandhills as a backdrop, the level course will weave you around beautiful Lake Ericson through a rural mixture of trails consisting of gravel, dirt, and sand.


As a non profit organization, the Ericson Lake Corporation strives to protect and promote wildlife and water conservation as well as to provide an environment in which to enjoy it.  With your help we can raise much needed funds and increase awareness that will enhance the conservation and sustainability of Lake Ericson.
