This trail run will feature all the best of the Dubuque County landscape including creek crossings, steep inclines, and rugged terrain. The run will offer three distance options: 5.2 miles, 10.4 miles, and a 25K all set against the beautiful backdrop of Swiss Valley Nature Preserve. All proceeds from the run will benefit the Friends of Dubuque County Conservation who help support Dubuque County parks and environmental education! There will be free tent camping for runners at the Swiss Valley camp ground located down the street from the race start and directly next to the racer pick up location. Runners will be able to use the showers in the campground for free after the race to clean up. In addition to the other races we will be having a kids fun run this year. The run will be a distance of 1 kilometer through part of the trail system giving the kids a chance to be a part of the creek stomping action along with the other racers. All we ask is that the children participating in the event are registered with a friend or family member whom is already running the event. This will be a bonus for all of the registered runners and allow their little runners a chance to participate for free. If you have any question about the run please let us know. This will be an event for the kids who are 12 and under.
