New Event Feature: Salomon Trail Running Series at Hyland in Bloomington, MN

While on Facebook the other day, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a new fall series of trail running races, literally in my own backyard and conveniently next to where I work! This series, sponsored by Salomon, Hoigaards, and Breadsmith consists of four 5k trail runs begining on Wednesday, 16 September, and continues on 9/23, 10/21, and 10/28. Each even's race starts at 6PM from the Hyland Park Reserve main chalet. Pre-registration for this event is a bargain at $15 each or $50 for the entire series of 4 events. Evening of race registration is $20 per race.

I've spent a lot of time running, skiing, and cycling on the Hyland Park Reserve trails over the past 5 years and I can vouch for the amazing condition they're kept in, the variety of terrain, the wild life, and the beauty of the land. This is truly a perfect venue for such a race, and is also the choice venue for huge trail running events such as the well known "Trail Mix".
