Race Day


Running Wild Trail Run is held at Maplewood State Park located seven miles east of Pelican Rapids, Minnesota. Signs will direct you to the race as you enter the park on race day.

This race is a one of Health Resources Center‘s largest fundraising events of the year! This fun, family-oriented event is also a part of the Fergus Falls Area Race Series (link to website).

To celebrate 6 years of Running Wild we will have our First Running Wild Woodallion Hunt for 7K participants ONLY. There will be six Running Wild Woodallions along the 7K course. Runners have the opportunity to find one Woodallion while racing. Each of the six runners that return to the finish line with a Woodallion will receive a unique Running Wild Prize!! Clues to the Woodallion locations will be posted the morning of the race at the Josh Hanson Memorial Picnic Shelter.
