About This Activity

Allina Health Trail Mix Race Minnesota is a favorite first run of the season for many trail runners. With its 25-year anniversary this year, it's also one of the oldest! 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. Learn more about accessibility in Three Rivers.

Registration for 2016 is open.
