Storm Trail Race Series is hosting a Storm the Day race at Prairie Island Campground in Winona on October 16.

This event is made for everyone. You can do one loop or 50 loops — it is all up to you. The clock begins at sunrise and you will have until sunset to complete the looped course as many times as you can. Tired after the third loop? Take a rest. Want to stop and eat lunch after your 10th loop? Go for it. It is all up to you.

If you choose to participate as a team, you and your teammates can decide who does how many loops and in what order. Put your feet up while your teammate takes their turn on the course. Half of you want to walk and the others want to run? Perfect. This is the event where that is not only allowed but encouraged. You do what you want and at what pace.

Set a goal for the day and enjoy the journey of attaining that goal. Your friends and family are welcome at the event to help cheer you on to that goal, no matter what it is. 

The Storm Trail Race Series strives to hold events for all skill levels, all speeds, and all experience levels. Think you can’t participate in a race? Think again. If you can move forward, this event is for you.
