PROFESSIONAL RACE PHOTOS NEW!

New in 2014!  Walker Athletic Photography will be the official Urban Wildland photographer.  All registrants will have an opportunity to purchase professional race pictures after the event.  Walker has been shooting photos at running events across the nation since 2005.

FUND A FIELD TRIP NEW!
Proceeds from the race benefit Wood Lake's environmental-education budget, but we invite you to sponsor additional Wood Lake field trips taken by Richfield Public School students as part of their science curriculum.  The cost of each student's three trips to Wood Lake is $3.  At registration, you may choose to sponsor additional field trips to Wood Lake!

SHIRT & SHOE RECYCLING NEW!

At this year's packet pickup (Friday and Saturday), runners can drop off old shirts and old shoes to be recycled or reused, thanks to USAgain. Every pound of clothing collected prevents seven pounds of CO2 emissions!
