Many MANY of us have Zumbro in our sights. We LOVE Zumbro! In all your excitement for the big spring race by RSR, don't forget to register for the Mason Run @ Chester Woods. SE MN Trail Runners helps mark this trail race and we love this park for our Tuesday runs.
Don't forget -prices go up April 1. 5K/10mile/50K link below
Get in on the fun for super reasonable!! There will be a band & beverages & Burma Shave signs and more trail. Hope to see you-in the woods, on the prairie, at the finish!!
Chatfield for Tuesday 3-27! Count on an ungroomed trail, natural beauty, and fun afters. Wish I could tell you what the weather would be like. Meet at Groen Park (across from Mill Creek Park) in Chatfield at 6:15pm. We'll car pool & get our miles in. This is a point to point so if 6.2 miles is daunting, let us know before we leave the lot & we'll find an alternative start/route for you.
Icy & muddy were on hand for last night's run. As always fun & laughs came along as well. Love this group and the people in it. Good to see some friends we'd not seen in a while. Life gets busy, stuff comes up. Come run, or even, hike with us when you can, as often as you can. Running with friends is always more fun! (next week = Lost Creek..details later in the week)
For those planning on joining us Tuesday March 20orSo. ..Larry is providing some good updated info on making it to the party on time.
Let's see what we find at Essex next Tuesday! We're meeting in the parking lot at 6:20pm to allow Winona people to get there. We'll do some miles on snow or grass or mud & then head to Binkies North for afters. See you then!
Join us for "something" on the trails of Eastwood Park! Meet at 6:15pm at the parking lot next to the softball diamond for a few miles in the daylight (FINALLY!) We're all getting excited to run but we'll have to see what the weather & trail conditions have in store for us. We'll hit El Carumba's for afters.
Oxbow is a beautiful park that we seldom get to run in on our Tuesdays so we're all super excited about March 6! Meet at the parking lot in the event below at 6:15pm for some miles on the trails. It could be muddy if this melt continues so bring clothes for afters. Rumor is the Bear's Den.
We will not get busted this time. We will not get busted this time...Ok we HOPE we won't. Indian Heights is a smallish neighborhood natural area on top of a hill next to Assisi Heights. Plan on snowshoeing based on the forecast. We will meet at the bottom of the hill in the parking lot at 6:15pm for a mishmash of loops on the trails there.
Here's the short story: One time the neighbors got nervous that all those cars were filled with kids looking to party and asked an officer to show up to make sure we were on the up & up. While we like to think that our presence in a parking lot actually DISCOURAGES riff raff from hanging out, we will take our afters elsewhere on Tuesday so the neighbors rest easy. TBD
Moving the Tuesday 2/20 event to Holzinger due to trail conditions. Stay safe friends. Be mindful of road conditions. If we miss you this week, we will catch you another Tues.
Dan asked for suggestions & got just one so here we go guys!!! Need a little Zumbro training?? We've got you a hill! We'll meet at Mandy's house 6420 Woodland Blvd, MN City 55959 at 6:15pm and run/walk/hike to the bottom of the hill. From there it's 1 mile up hill. On top there are various distances on wide rolling trails (or you can just go up & down the hill. lol) Eventually we head back down the hill and pick a restaurant to do afters.
Have we ever snowshoed at Gamehaven?? I can't recall. From the talk last night, there will be some runners and maybe some snowshoers next Tuesday. Meet at the little parking lot at 6:15pm and join us for some fun! Roosters 2 for afters!
Oh how I wish it were warm for Bill Barnacle! Fortunately there is that old saying which is SO true: Tuesdays never suck with this group!!
Therefore we will meet at 6:15pm at the Marion, MN Minocco gas station on hwy 52 and car pool out to Bill Barnacle state woodland. You may snowshoe; you may run. Plan to have fun!
Afters will be determined by the group who shows up.
Dan Valentine, wouldn't this be a fun and awesome Winona event? Snowshoe or run Holzinger (or any other amazing trail) and then go here and another cool Winona place for drinks/dinner??
We are excited to announce Second Saturdays, a new monthly community event at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum. Every second Saturday, March through October, wil...l feature $1 admission and special events such as themed tours, art-making projects, artist demonstrations and more. All this is made available through an arts access grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
As promised...WHITEWATER!!! Snowshoe, hike, or run...just make sure to come join the fun! Meet at the Nature Center (store) parking lot at 6:15pm on Tuesday Jan 30. Not sure where our route will take us but we will end up at Mauer Brothers! We ♥ that place!
Helpful map & more information including clever intro by Dan if you'd like to check out the official event.
Chester Woods was beautiful for our snowshoe last night! We got a great work out, had a lot of fun, and even made some new friends! And the new taco afters place was pretty yummy too.
Sounds like next week is another favorite: Whitewater! Check back toward the end of the week for details.
I've heard rumors that they won't be sending us up the salad bar trail which is steep & never ending. No we don't race this. It's just a beautiful trail made more fun when friends show up. I know a few of us in Winona do this each year.
Who's in for tacos??! Ok first we're going to do a little running or hiking or snowshoeing at Chester Woods but then we're going to El Carambas for afters (and tacos!!). I'm not sure which I'm more excited for!
Meet in the beach house parking lot at 6:15pm Jan 23. We'll do our miles & then head out for tacos!
