Runners will experience the tall grass prairie, woodlands, and maybe even some wildlife! In addition, grass surfaces will cushion the strides of each runner. Immediately following the events, runners will be treated with an ALL YOU CAN EAT pancake and sausage breakfast and a free single entry into the Fall Festival! Fall Festival is a conservation celebration of the changing seasons and will include hayrack rides, prairie maze, live music, face painting, bow shoot, pumpkin patch, inflatables, fresh pressed apple cider, popcorn, games, and giveaways! Proceeds from the trail race and fall fest will serve to benefit the natural resources and sustainability of Jasper County through the help of our non-profit group, Jasper Conservation Connection.
AWARDS- The first place male and female winner of each race will receive a prize, including a golden ticket to move to the front of the line for the pancake breakfast. All race participants will receive a long sleeved shirt, free single entry into the fall fest, and free pancake breakfast! Just keep your race bib number and that will get you in for the fun!
