North End Trail Run

May 30, 2020
The North End Trail Run will start and finish at the trailhead and will include distances of 5 kilometers, 5 miles and 10 miles.  All courses will utilize the Ojibwe singletrack bike trail and segments of the North End Ski Trails.  The terrain of the area is constantly rolling and varied with only a few longer sustained hills.  The Ojibwe Trail is one of the oldest mountain bike trails in the area and, except for a few more recent additions, has mostly retained its original “old school” rustic character. It is narrow, twisting and has regular technical attributes (rocks and roots).  “Local runners over the years have really enjoyed the Ojibwe Trail,” notes Ron Bergin with both the North End Ski Club and CAMBA. “It’s the sort of trail that you really have to pay attention.”  The trail winds deep into the Bayfield County Forest through varied forest types.

The North End Trail Run will be a low-key, few-frills event with the goal of having a good time and enjoying the trails and the camaraderie of fellow runners. All runners will receive a trail run hat. Age Class winners will each receive a custom North End Trail Run key fob/bottle opener. Overall winners will also receive a slice of Tilly’s Pie.

The entry fee for all distances is $30. Race day registration is $35 and will take place at the North End Warming Cabin.

All proceeds from the event will go to benefit the North End Ski Club, a non-profit organization, and maintenance of the trails and trailhead.  For additional information, contact race director Shelly Wilson at 715/307-3720.
