Two Rivers Shuffle

Come one come all to the first, hopefully not the last, "Two Rivers shuffle"

I have put together a fun-run with several distance options from 3 to 50 miles. Of course, for those joining the 50-milers later in the day you'll have to suffer the slow pace and the moaning and complaining and likley have to hang at the "drop-station" van until we make it back from one of several, different loops...but hey, maybe that's incentive to go for the long run?

This is a "mixed" ultra consisting of both trail running and asphalt paths in the urban setting, but don't let that fool you! The trails I've linked together are possibly the best the twin cities has to offer in one continuous circuit linking both cities. Home base, and the support van, is located at Forst Snelling SP and several loops branch out and back from there, so no crew people needed that would have to sacrifice an entire day to help us. The longest ssection without aid is the first 20 miles of the day, so packs may be required for that section depending on conditions and your needs. All trails stick to the two rivers' cooridors and offer fun, highly variable running with beautiful vistas.

  1. Pete, Joel and I are still in for the run this Saturday and welcome anyone else ready for the fun day! Others had to cancel given race schedules, injuries and in one case, a severe onset of pregnancy (congrat's Katie!). Everyone will be sorely missed and we hope you can make it next year! If you're interested in joining us, post here and I'll get you more details.
