Mildred's Trail Dash 2017
Saturday -July 8th
The Roseburg Road Runners and The Friends of Mildred Kanipe Memorial Park are offering the eigth annual 9K Trail Run and a 5k Fun walk/run to be held at the park July 8th. The Run and Walk starts and finishes at the Day Use Area.
The Trail Dash route will take you through Oak savannahs, a thick forest of beautiful Douglas Fir, mostly on singletrack trails. Runners shouldl stay cool as about 70% of the course will be in the shade of trees. This is Oregon and there is plenty of poison oak but we will be inspecting and trimming the trails prior to race to help eliminate direct contact.
You can count on one hill in the 5k and two in the 9k. It's a fairly technical trail - which means that there will be roots, rocks, and uneven footing. The start and finish are on a wide dirt road.
Spectators can visit some of the historic displays as they cheer for their friends. Visit our new completed campground in the equestrian area. Also, new geocaches have been hidden at the park for your discovery. If you want an easy walk, stroll through the nature trail. Awards will be presented at the end of the run in the Public Picnic Area.
Early online registration is $30/9K or $20/5K which includes your race and a commemorative t-shirt. This year we are offering a choice of women's or men's t-shirt. Early and Online registration closes June 26th. Register on raceday for $25/9K or $15/5k (t-shirt not included). Purchase a t-shirt, if available, on race-day for $15. All fees include a complimentary Friends membership. Registration on race day is from 7:00AM to 8:15AM. The Race starts at 8:30 AM.
