You have trained all summer. Now it is time to test yourself by running the Willow River Trail Challenge. The course is a scenic mix of steep climbs and descents (450 ft climbing and 450 ft of descending) though Willow River State Park totaling 10.6K (aka the Long Course).
The run will take you along the banks of Willow River, up to an overlook of Little Falls Lake, through some beaver ponds, past Willow Falls, along the shores of Little Falls Lake and back to where you started.
Tackle the Six Sisters - Everest (152 ft), Kilimanjaro (32 ft), Rainer (27 ft), McKinley (40 ft), K2 (61 ft) and Fuji (23 ft) then run the serpent’s tail to the finish.
Not quite up for the long course? Then try the 6.6K short course with less than half of the climbing of the long course (185 ft climbing and 360 ft of descending). The short course follows the same route as the long course except it begins 4K from the start of the long course. You will be shuttled to the start of the short course by bus after the long course race begins. The route will take you down a steep descent, through the beaver ponds, past Willow Falls, along the shores of the Little Falls Lake and back to where the long course started.
Tackle three of the Six Sisters - McKinley (40 ft), K2 (61 ft) and Fuji (23 ft) then run the Serpent’sTail to the finish.
Proceeds from this event benefit the Friends of Willow River and Kinnickinnic State Parks (Willow River Organization for Wildlife Learning, Inc.) The Friends support environmental, educational and recreational activities in Willow River and Kinnickinnic state parks
