Runners are guaranteed to get muddy at the Memorial Day Trail Run X-treme at Portage’s Imagination Glen Outback Trail on May 27.
Youths are also invited to the Portage event, but will utilize a tamer course on the park’s soccer fields and trails. The kid’s mile race starts at 8:15 a.m. and the adult race kicks off at 9 a.m.
Fees for the 12K are $25 for those registered by Monday. This early sign-up will include an X-treme Run technical T-shirt. The cost for registration after May 13 through race morning is $30. Fees for youth participants are $15 for those preregistered by May 13 (T-shirt included) and $20 after that.
The 12K run is a Gold Cup, XYZ Series race. All proceeds from the race go to Gabriel’s Horn Homeless Shelter and the Outback Trail Commission. Original runner’s art awards will be presented and a Memorial Day cookout will be hosted for all participants after the race.
