Blue Mound Trail Run
2023 TRAIL RUN
June 3, 2023
Whew, that was a hot one! Thanks for coming out to the park, running hard, celebrating, socializing, and supporting the Friends of Blue Mound State Park. Wonderful to see old friends and welcome new ones.
Results are posted! We apologize for not having the 10K results ready in time to do awards. If you were top 3 in your age group, we're happy to send a medal to you, but we would much rather have had the chance to hand it to you in person in front of your running buddies!
Thank you to our sponsors for generous contributions to timing, food, and prizes!
Thank you to our outstanding volunteers, who really make it all happen.
Next year, 20th annual. Any suggestions to make the next one better? Send them our way.

ALMOST FULL HOUSE

10 days until showtime, less than 10 spots left before we hit our runner limit. Registration will close when we hit the limit.
If you're already in and want to switch distances, you can do that on RunSignup or just drop us an email.
Interested in volunteering for the run? Get in touch if you can donate a few hours to the event.
Trails are drying out nicely, flower show is in the lady slippers and trillium phase, and the woods have grown their shade again. It's a sweet time to run or hike at the Mound!

It's been an up and down spring for sure, but in the (somewhat) vast woodlands of Blue Mound State Park the glorious ephemeral show is in full swing. If you run now you will see Hepatica, Bloodroot, Anemone, Dutchman's Britches, Toothwort. Also some mud. Soon Trillium, Bellwort, Jack in the Pulpit, Shooting Stars and later Lady Slippers will join the party.
Sign up, train up and show up. Love to see you!
REGISTRATION IS OPEN
April 15, 2023
Kaboom it's spring! And that means its time for the Blue Mound Trail Run. Registration is open for the event on Saturday June 3rd, 10K and 18K. The trails will be lush with spring flowers and birds, the food great and the company outstanding. It might be heat or mud or whatever but it's all good. More info about this all-volunteer fundraising event for the Friends of Blue Mound State Park is on the Details page.
If you've already registered, thank you!
Looking forward to seeing you in June.
