Gunflint is Greening Up

     The recent rain we’ve had on the Gunflint Trail has helped in changing the landscape from brown to green. That combined with the hundreds of volunteers ready to plant and release trees on the Trail today will really make a difference.

     There will be lots of folks on the Gunflint Trail and in Grand Marais today.  Registration and Packet Pick up for the Ham Run Half Marathon and 5k Fun Run will be held at the Lake Superior Trading Post from 10am until 4pm today.  Those people who want to walk or run the 5k and haven’t signed up to do so yet can head over and pay $20.00 to participate.  They’ll have the option of purchasing their own pasta feed, t-shirt and race bag.

     The Pasta Feed will be held from 4pm-6pm at My Sister’s Place Restaurant in Grand Marais, MN.  Participants will eat for free and guests can enjoy a spaghetti dinner for $8.95/adult and $4.95 per child. 

     Up the Trail Green Up participants will enjoy a dinner in the tent followed by a celebration of the 100th birthday of the Superior National Forest.  Afterwards the Trail’s End Band will be providing music for a dance. 

     Ham Run participants will no doubt be hitting the sack early in preparation for the Half-Marathon on Sunday morning.  We hope you will join us for a weekend of Green Fun on the Gunflint Trail.
