The Ericson Lake Corporation proudly presents the 2nd annual Trail Mix Fun Run to be held on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at Lake Ericson, located one mile south of Ericson, Nebraska.
The Trail Mix Fun Run is a non-competitive trail run for walkers and runners of all ages and levels. With the rolling Sandhills as a backdrop, the 5K level course will weave you around beautiful Lake Ericson through a rural mixture of trails consisting of gravel, dirt, and sand. Do you feel like a more challenging trail run? Choose the 7K option with extends into the walking trail on the southwest end of the lake. The 7K trail will take you through the trees and open prairie areas on the hills around the lake. This portion of the trail consists of a variety of terrain (i.e sand, wood chips, dirt/mud, various tripping hazards) and includes many ups and downs. Due to these conditions, the 7K is not recommended for those with baby strollers.
