Mindy Creek Trails Races
Both Half and Full will take start and finish at the Polk County Tourism in St. Croix Falls. Excellent trail event for racing, getting ready for fall races by using this as a supported trail run or a way to spend time in the woods with friends.
Some of the guidelines will be:
1. Mask to be worn till start of event.
2. Social distance while not running.
3. Respect of others and COVID-19 by not attending if sick or been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 in recent days before the event. 4. Tempature check in and COVID-19 waiver signed prior to start. 5. No group running. Honor social distance. 5. No Post race awards and gatherings.
More guidelines could come as the event becomes closer along with state and national information is passed down. For example race start could be staggered with a max amount of people in each stage. If COVID-19 conditions don’t improve and continue to increase, there’s a chance that the 2021 Mindy Creek Trail races in person trail races will have to be run virtually. If this happens, more details will be sent to all registered runners. All efforts will be made to wait as long as possible to make this decision.
NEW for 2021 is a 10k option that will give runners plenty of diverse trail conditions just like the full or half marathon with paved trail, gravel, and single track. The course will be an out and back.
