KD Park is the perfect location for the Hills are Alive Trail Run and Walk. This looped course, allows you to enjoy the varied landscapes of this former gravel quarry and 39 acre lake. The beginning of the loop takes you around the lake on wide groomed paths and some picturesque single track. The view is so spectacular that you might be inspired to take a few selfies during your trail adventure! Your circle back is single track through the woods where deer and trail runners play! The trail is well maintained and not highly technical so this course is welcoming, but is also challenging due to the hills.
Once you have completed your loops, you will return to a St. Patrick’s celebration with corned beef, cabbage, and carrots and potatoes. Craft soda, and great company make Hills Are Alive Trail Run/Walk the perfect kick start to your spring training!
The 9 mile trail event is a trail race for PRIZE MONEY. It will be age graded. Age grading is a way of putting all race participants on a level playing field, regardless of age or gender. For example a 24 year old male running a 5K event in 30 minutes will have an age graded time of 30 minutes, a 68 year old man running it in 30 minutes would have an age graded time of 22:47, and a 13 year old girl would have an age graded time of 27:45. This unique twist will put a little running fire under everyone’s feet as the fastest time may not necessarily win!
This event is part of the 2018 CaniCross Event Series. If you are wondering what CaniCross is, you are not alone. It is similar to mushing, but instead of pulling a sled, your dog is pulling you through the trails. All that is required is a gang line, harness, and canicross belt. This event is a timed three mile loop. While it can be competitive, it also can be a fun way to test out both your and your dog’s fitness.
This event is perfect for all fitness levels and is dog friendly for those not interested in participating in the CaniCross Event.
Please note that we have changed the start location of this event. We will start in finish at the shelter in Kaskin Park (Bassett Park) in Twin Lakes.
