If you like birds or like to run,
why not come to the
Early Bird Run
International Migratory Bird Day?
Save the date for 2014: APRIL 26
Registration for this event is either on-line with Active.com or by paper (entry here).
Starting in 2013, we have a Facebook group for this race! On this page we post photos of the route and from previous years’ races.
These are fun, fast courses. The 1.5 mile is an out-and-back on a gravel road and is basically flat. The 5-mile continues beyond the shorter turn around point and is primarily on dirt, non-technical trail with a brief stretch of gravel road on the NE corner of the lake. The total elevation gain for the 5-mile route is about 60 feet.
Both routes have a great view of the lake
