Runners, it's time to start training for the fourth annual Terry Badlands Trail Run!
This year's race and fun run/walk will be Saturday, June 30th.
The winding dirt course takes participants through the middle of the beautiful Terry badlands on the scenic Calypso Trail. Events include a 5K and 10K, as well as a free one-mile fun run/walk.
Last year, this race attracted 50 runners, from competitive athletes to casual runners, kids and families, as well as families, friends and spectators from across the state. Organizers are hoping for an even better turnout this year.
"The goal of this event is really to get people outside and to promote the badlands," said organizer Megan Olson. "We'd like to see even more people this year to keep growing the run."
Profits from the Terry Badlands Trail Run support the Prairie County Economic Development Council's trail mapping project.
A $20 registration fee includes a race T-shirt and post-race drinks and snacks. Winners will take home great prizes donated by local businesses.
Race-day registration begins at 8 a.m. at the Calypso Trail trailhead on June 30th, and the race will start at 9 a.m.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to run in the beautiful Terry badlands and support local economic development!
