Monthly Destination Trail Run: McKenzie River Trail
December 28, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
- This event has passed.
For December’s monthly Trail destination run we will keep with tradition and head to the McKenzie River Trail for the holidays! We will meet at Run Hub at 9 AM to carpool to Belknap Hot Springs, and then we will get shuttled to three different spots (snow permitting) up the trail for a 13, 9, or 5 mile option. The 5-miler will start at Deer Creak and head back to Belknap, the 9-miler will be dropped off at Trail Bridge, and the 14 miler will be dropped off at Carmen Reservoir. (Snow permitting) The 14-miler will run by Blue Pool. If you have not seen this wonder it is definitely worth burning the extra calories. Afterwards come join us for a soak at Belknap. One hour costs $7 and will be certain to warm your legs up after a brisk run on the trail. Shuttles will be $5 a piece. All proceeds will go to McKenzie High School Athletics. Cash only please. All levels welcome. Come out and join us for a fun run with friends right before the New Year!
The past two years we have not been able to shuttle runners to Carmen Reservoir because of the snow level. If that is the case but you still want to do Blue pool, you can just do an out and back from Trail Bridge and make it almost a 13-mile run.
Here are the maps on Strava for the Deer Creek and Trail Bridge run.
