2014 Dogwood Canyon Trail Runs

15K, 25K & 50K Trail Runs and Dogwood Challenge

2013 Results for the 15K, 25K and 50K Trail Runs

Dates: Saturday and Sunday, October 18 - 19, 2014
Start Time: 8:00 am
Location: Dogwood Canyon Nature Park, 2038 West State HWY 86, Lampe, Missouri 65681

Set within the Dogwood Canyon Nature Park, these trail runs offer a unique and one of a kind running experience. Dogwood Canyon is a natural paradise with over 10,000 acres, providing a fantastic variety of trails for our 50K/25K/15K Trail Runs. Dogwood Canyon is located close to Lampe Missouri and the trails take runners through both Missouri and Arkansas. This is truly a perfect trail race with rocks, hills, mud, streams and more. Wear appropriate footwear and clothing as the race goes on rain or shine. In this area, the weather can be freezing or in the 70's. Be prepared for weather conditions and dress accordingly.

 

The Trail Runs

Each trail run is unique but all runs will share some of the same territory.  The 15K has one aid station while the 25K and 50K runs each have 3 to 5 aid stations.  The courses are hilly and somewhat rocky, providing our runners with a physically challenging and satisfying experience.  These courses are only open for our trail runs, making the participants of this world class event amongst the special few who are granted access to these majestic and hidden parts of the canyon.  Once runners experience our exclusive Bass Pro Outdoor Fitness Festival Dogwood Canyon Trail Runs, it becomes an annual event for most!

 

The Dogwood Challenge

New for 2014, runners will be able to complete the 15K on Saturday and choose the 25K or 50K on Sunday, accomplishing your own personal challenge.  There is a finisher's prize for all runners who complete this challenge; the prize will be received in addition to the race medals for each event and the finisher's prize for the 25K and 50K.

Challenge Awards: Top three male and top three female overall; masters male and female.  Winners receive a duffel from The North Face.
