2.8-Mile Family Trail Run
T Shelter #14
Wyandotte County Lake Park

Web This is truly a good "intro" to the Summer season and the perfect intro to Trail Running.
No major hills, no major mud if it rains, and a fast and completely beautiful and runnable course.
This would be the perfect course for a trail running beginner or children, too.  It's a fun family event, but also a very fast and competitive race, right up to the finish.  A great Father's Day Weekend activity!  Free oval sticker to all finishers!
