Come and join us in the beautiful Belle Prairie Park nestled among some of the largest red pines in the area. The start line is along the Mississippi River and boasts a disc course, picnic area and playground. The 8K course is on asphalt, flat, and fast. The 4K Trail will be a combination of road and trail. Both are chip-timed. Grab some friends and make a team for the 8K event. We also encourage anyone to participate in the 1K Fun Run led by the River Rat. Great t-shirts, refreshments, prizes, and quick results make our race one to put on your calendar. All Walkers welcome. Can't make it to the event? We have a virtual option! We'll send you your swag and post your results.
