The St. Cloud River Runners
are sponsoring the "First Annual Lake Wobegon Trail Marathon" it will start 7:00 a.m. on May 10, 2008 at the Holdingford Trail Head on the Lake Wobegon Trail.
The race is run entirely on the Lake Wobegon Trail. Runners will head north from the Holdingford Trail Head for .86 miles and then back through the town of Holdingford and the towns of Albany, Avon, and St. Joseph. The race finishes at the trail head in St. Joseph.
The trail is primarily rural except as it passes through the four small towns along the route. Many people feel that the trail from Holdingford to St. Joseph is the prettiest portion of the Lake Wobegon Trail.
They were going to limit it to 50 runners but I see that has been raised to 100 and the race field is full.
