Kansas City Trail Nerds and Action Events Present:

2nd Annual
Psycho Psummer Trail Run
50K, 15-Mile, and Psychopathic 5K
Saturday, July 05, 2008
Kansas City, Kansas
A run on hilly bridle trails, single-track trails, and dirt roads.
This course will be different in many ways from the February Psycho Wyco Race.  And we can almost guarantee that it won't be 15 degrees F, and you won't be running on ice.
8:00 a.m. start

All entrants will receive a "technical" fabric short-sleeve shirt and mug with an original Jason Crosby design. Finishers of the 15-Mile and 50K events will receive a finisher's medal.

Results, Race Reports and Photos for the 2008 event can be found here.

Well, We had a fabulous event in 2007: The volunteers were hard-working and wonderful; the runners were par-boiled but cheerful, and the course was grueling, yet beautiful in its own way.  Check out all race reports, photos, etc, HERE.
