2021 TRAIL RUN
June 7, 2021

10K DOWN, 18K TO GO
June 5, 2021
A big thank you to all the runners and volunteers who came out today for the 10K in-person events. It was great to see old friends and new faces, and great to be back to having trail run events. It was a hot one, but you all handled it with style. Results and Photos are posted for the 10K.
18K runners, we're looking forward to seeing you tomorrow! We'll have aid stations with water and Gatorade at approximately 4, 9, 13, and 16K, and a portapotty at the 9K Brigham aid station.
COURSE IS MARKED!
June 4, 2021
The 10K and 18K courses are now marked for self-timed runners. Start/finish near the portapotties in front of the shelter. If you are signed up for one of the in-person events and want to switch to self-timed, feel free to do that and just let us know. Use the link on the Results page to submit your self-timed result.
RACE WEEK INFO
June 2, 2021
After a year away, we're looking forward to seeing you this weekend! The course is in good shape and as challenging and beautiful as ever.
Although the State Park Covid rules have been relaxed some since our run plan was approved in May, we are mostly sticking with the approved plan for the event. The individual event caps are increased to 125, but currently looks like we'll be just under 100 for each. Good news--the pool and Friends Shelter will both be open (pool opens 11 am)!
Some updates have been posted on the Details page, including info for submitting self-timed results.
In addition to the usual sticks and ticks, rocks, holes, fallen trees, falling trees, mud, dust, hills, creeks, clouds, rain, sun, gnats, rocks, and stairs, looks like it's going to be a hot one. Take it easy and look out for each other out there. We'll have 1st aid help at some aid stations and at the finish, so see them if you or another runner need help.
More good news--it's the State Parks free weekend, so no park admission fee.
RUN, VOLUNTEER, REPEAT
May 26, 2021
With a little more than a week to go until race weekend, we've still got room for more runners and need for a few more volunteers. Might that be you or someone you know? With the multievent format this year, it's possible to run one event and volunteer for another for the complete BMTR package. Registration is open through 6/3. To volunteer, contact Willi at .
BLUE MOUND TRAIL RUN IS A GO!
May 2, 2021
Yay! We got the go ahead for the trail run late last week. To meet the State Parks limit of 100 people at a time, we're splitting the event up into smaller events on Saturday and Sunday, June 5-6. See the Details page for the complete scoop, and get in touch if you have questions.
April 19, 2021
Things are looking hopeful for another Blue Mound Trail Run in June. Final details still being worked out, but with the latest update to the state park COVID rules, it looks like we will be able to have an in-person event with up to 100 people at a time. The current plan is to split the in-person timed run into 3 events on 2 days and offer a self-timed virtual version as well.
We'll get more details posted a nd get registration open as soon as we can.
