Alternate Chili Run...
"A Taste of Psycho WyCo"
(a 10-mile hilly trail run)
**13th Annual**
At Shelter #2
Wyandotte County Lake Park
Kansas City, KS
9:00 AM
 
Chip-timing and a well-marked course. 
 
 
A trail run that is "a taste of Psycho WyCo", on the Psycho Wyco course.  Less swag, less runners, chili & beer.  A finisher's medal.  Fun Times!
Entrants get a technical winter headband (that covers the ears) or hat or cinch bag, and a chili mug.
Finishers receive a very nice medal and a unique oval sticker.
There will be regular and vegan chili, water, juice, and ale at the end.
It will be a well-marked course with limited aid.  Consider it a training run for the opulent and prestigious Psycho Wyco run in February. 
Due to parking (and chili) constraints, this race is limited to 150 entrants.  Sign-up soon, if you want to get a coveted Trail Nerds' calendar for 2016.

Current (paying) Trail Nerd members get a $15 discount.  Not a member?  Become one, here.
