About This Activity

The SMU Trail Scamper is an event that the Saint Mary's University of MN Cross Country team hosts as a fund-raiser for our  Cross Country programs.  However, it is more than that.  We recognize how fortunate we are to have such beautiful trails on our campus and want to be able to share them with the community so that others can enjoy them also.  It is a beautiful trail course that allows beginning trail runners, walkers, cross country runners and seasoned runners a chance to be challenged but also is doable for any level of experience.

We hope to see you there!
