No major hills,
no major mud if it rains, and a fast and completely beautiful and runnable course.
This would be the perfect course for a trail
running beginner or children, too. It's a fun family event, but also a very fast and competitive race, right up

take a LEFT at West Drive when entering the park. You will travel for about 2 miles and then pull into the lot of SHELTER

a great trail race. We ended up with 102 trail runners (about 40 more racers than expected) who were ready for a little mud
and humid weather.Over half of our entrants were race day which was a little

Nerds were able to give a nice donation to the Earth Riders Mountain Bike Club to continue building and maintaining trails
in the Kansas City area.
