Promo Postcard imageThe 1st annual Amy’s Adventure Race for the Lake was a 5-mile/8K trail race created to bring attention to the importance of the relationship between the protection of land and the protection of the lake’s water quality in addition to highlighting the holistic benefits of conserving our resources and providing recreation opportunities.

Thank you and congratulations to the 60 racers that braved the trail this year for this first ever event- we were blown away by your support and enthusiasm! We can’t wait to see you again next year!
