The Sugarbush Trail Association will present the 33rd Annual Tofte Trek 10K Wilderness Run/Walk on July 4.
Same-day registration is $30. Registration will be held at the Birch Grove Community Center in Tofte, starting at 7:45 a.m. Pre-registration, $25, is currently open and can be found at www.sugarbushtrail.org. Pre-registration closes on June 27.
The 10k walk will start at 9 a.m.; children's races (free) will take place at 9:05 a.m.; the 1-mile race will begin at 9:20 a.m. and the 10K run at 9:30 a.m. The race/walk is open to all abilities.
Jan Horak, an avid outdoorsman, cross-country skier and fitness enthusiast from Tofte started organizing the Tofte Trek 33 years ago and continued to do so for 25 years. The 10K wilderness run/walk winds its way through the
Superior National Forest along the cross-country ski trails, snowmobile trails and Superior Hiking Trail. Nature is always generous with providing runners and walkers with plenty of mud, so come prepared for it.
Age group awards will be provided along with a commemorative T-shirt to the first 200 registrants. Proceeds will be donated to Cook County nonprofit organizations.
