Swedish Mile Trail Run & Family Fun Day

October 9, 10:30-2pm

We are changing things up this year, and adding a whole lot of other fun activities for the whole family.

Bring the whole family to the Nordic Center and join us for lunch or beverages, enjoy a self-guided tour around the Vasaloppet grounds, learn about our youth ski program “Fast Tracks,” have a free s’more at the Marshmallow Shack, take a hayride, and explore the Vasaloppet trails in the colors of fall.  We’re working to build this into a fantastic day to be outdoors in Minnesota’s fall weather.

In addition to the trail run event, this year, the Swedish Mile will be the kick-off event for our new, week-long annual fundraiser format. The online auction will begin and the winners will be announced at the October 16th fundraiser social event. 

The Swedish Mile Trail Race includes a 10k timed trail race, a 5k fun run, a kid’s 1k or .5k race, and everyone gets a finishers medal. See complete details and schedule of events here.

You can REGISTRATION HERE for all of the trail run events. We hope you and your family will join us for this inaugural event.
