Fall Back Blast Trail Run

November 3. 2018


50K, 37.5K, 25K and 12.5K Trail Run Distances

Lowes Creek County Park; Eau Claire, WI

Get ready to earn that extra hour of sleep!  Join us for the fifth 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, 37.5K, 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.

2018 once again has 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!

 2018 Event Sponsors Include:


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.
