Get ready to earn that extra hour of sleep!  Join us for the fourth 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  wicking t-shirt,  post race refreshments 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! VOLUNTEER SIGN UP!

We reserve the right to make changes to the event or cancel it entirely if weather conditions pose a risk to racers or volunteers.  All entry fees are non-refundable.  The race course will close at 5pm for the safety of all participants and volunteers.

 
 * We use the word “Medal” to indicate the finisher recognition item – from the beginning this race has chosen to provide finishers with something with a purpose rather than a standard medal.  The meaning behind this is to give participants something that they can use rather than something that hangs on a hook or sits in a drawer.  Past items have included a Nite Ize carabiner/bottle opener, a printed cowbell and an aluminum water bottle with sticker.
