Get ready to earn that extra hour of sleep! Join us for the third annual Fall Back Blast Trail Run presented by Mayo Clinic Health System. We offer up a fun yet challenging course with a healthy mix of single track and ski trail. You’ll find short, punchy climbs, roots, rocks and plenty of pine trees. Your distance choices include a 50K, 25K and 12.5K. The race is limited to the first 300 registrants, so sign up before it’s too late! Follow our Facebook Event Page.
All pre-registered runners will receive a long sleeve wicking t-shirt, post race refreshments (bacon anyone?) and a finisher’s medal. Overall Male and Female winners in each race distance will receive a embroidered drop bag.
New for 2016 is a relay option for the 50K. Team up with friends to enjoy the 50K Fall Back Blast as a Two Person or Four Person Relay!
