Next up is one of our “new’ races to the series… The Eugene Curnow Trail Marathon tomorrow(7/12). For those of you new to UMTR, this race was recently renamed in honor of one of MN’s legends and huge contributors to MN Trail Running who recently lost his battle with cancer. An incredibly beautiful and challenging course that includes the famed “powerlines”.

See you out on the trails!

Take care,
