Iola Trail Run

April 15, 2017

Great Lakes Endurance introduced the Iola Trail Run in 2011 and it quickly became a favorite trail race on the Spring calendar. The inaugural race featured an inch of fresh snow and beams of sunlight through the woods. The venue is the much loved Iola Winter Sports Park with its famed cross country ski trails on rolling terrain carved by glaciers 10,000 years ago. The 15K also includes a classic section of the Ice Age Trail. This event supports youth skiing programs at the Iola Winter Sports Park.
