What: Two trail races - a 25K (15.5 mile) and a 50K (31 miles) - plus a 5K (3.1 mile) trail fun run/walk. This is a Toledo Roadrunners sponsored event: www.toledoroadrunners.org Where: The Buehner Center at Mallard Lake at Oak Openings Metropark. The park is located two miles west of the Toledo Express Airport south of Airport Highway in Swanton, OH. Courses and Support: All events begin and end next to the Buehner Center. The 25K and 50K follow the Oak Openings Scout trail (1 or 2 laps) counter-clockwise on single-track trails through hardwoods, evergreens, prairie, oak savannah, and meadows. There will be roots, sand, mud, bugs, critters, and all the usual stuff of a trail run, but no stream crossings. The course is mostly flat with a few modest climbs and descents. Aid stations will be located about every 2-3 miles. Porta-johns will be available at approximate 5 mile intervals. The 5K fun run/walk will be timed and also begins and ends near the Buehner Center. The course follows portions of the red and blue trails. A water stop will be located at approximately 1.5 miles. Post-race food and beverages will be available in the lodge.
