The Trail Less Traveled
Today’s the day of the 5th Annual Ham Run Half-Marathon and 5k Fun Run on the Gunflint Trail. The 5k and Half-Marathon begin at 10am and both head towards the end of the Trail, just as the Ham Lake Fire did in 2007.
The race course is so beautiful in spite of the areas scarred by wildfire. There is so much new growth it’s difficult to believe there ever was a fire. Runners are in for such a treat as they pass by ponds, flowing rivers and bubbling creeks. I love to run on the Gunflint Trail and I’m lucky I can do it anytime I want. It’s a magical place to be.
Whether or not you come for the Ham Run we invite you to come anytime and take a run or walk on the Gunflint Trail. It does a body and mind good.
Happy Ham Run Day!
