2017 Tour de Trails

Tour de Trails

Saturday, May 6th 2017

What better way to kick off the exciting All School’s Day Festivities than to hit one of McPherson County’s freshest amenities!  The 4th annual Tour de Trails Event will take place on Saturday, May 6th, 2017 at the Meadowlark Trail Head.   This year’s event will feature three distances for those running/walking the race: 8 miles, 4 miles, or 2 miles.  The race path is a 100% trail course stretching over McPherson County’s Beautiful Meadowlark Trail.

Runners/Walkers:

This year all of the events will be “out and back” routes and will begin at the Meadowlark Trail Head.

The 8 mile option will take participants north 4 miles to Pawnee Road before participants will be directed to turn around and head back to the Trail Head.

The 4 mile option will take participants north 2 miles to Navajo Road before participants will be directed to turn around and head back to the Trail Head.

The 2 mile option will take participants north 1 mile to Mohawk Road before participants will be directed to turn around and head back to the Trail Head.

This event is FAMILY FRIENDLY and open to Runners and Walkers!

This year’s events will give each participant the chance to sample the beauty of a local trail running and walking venue.

Runners and Walkers of all skill are invited to attend – from advanced to novice – this race has something for everyone!

So, let us lace up those shoes, grab some friends and come dominate some trails!  Run local, support local!

All Proceeds stay right here in McPherson and Marion County and will directly benefit the Central Kansas Conservancy’s Rails-to-Trails Project!
