Tour de Trails

Saturday, May 12th 2018

What better way to kick off the exciting All School’s Day Festivities than to hit one of McPherson County’s freshest amenities! The 5th annual Tour de Trails Event will take place on Saturday, May 12th, 2018 at the Meadowlark Trail Head. This year’s event will feature three distances for those running/walking the race:

8 miles,

4 miles,

or 2 miles.

The race path is a 100% trail course stretching over McPherson County’s Beautiful Meadowlark Trail.


The 8 mile option will be an out and back route which will begin at the Meadowlark Trail Head and extend north 4 miles to Pawnee Road before participants will be directed to turn around and head back to the Trail Head.

The 4 mile event will end at Pawnee. Arrangements have been made for participants choosing the 4 mile option to be transported back to the Trail Head.

The 2 mile event will be an out and back run as well with participants turning around at the 1 mile mark at Mohawk Rd.

This event is FAMILY FRIENDLY and open to Runners and Walkers!

This year’s events will give each participant the chance to sample the beauty of a local trail running and walking venue.

Runners and Walkers of all skill are invited to attend – from advanced to novice – this race has something for everyone!

So, let us lace up those shoes, grab some friends and come dominate some trails! Run local, support local!

All Proceeds stay right here in McPherson and Marion County and will directly benefit the Central Kansas Conservancy’s Rails-to-Trails Project!
