This Race will be run in Beautiful Red Wing MN. This time of year the leaves are changing and there is no better place to see them than running through the trees and looking out over the Mississippi River Valley. 

This event is being put on by Friends of the Bluffs. 

It will consist of a 5 mile loop with aid stations. 

You can sign up for the 5, 10 ,15, 20 mile run and 5 mile hike. 

Established in 2012, FOTB's mission is to increase the enjoyment, promotion, and stewardship of Red Wing's bluffs. Those include Barn Bluff, Sorin's Bluff (Memorial Park), and the Billings-Tomfohr Conservation Area. 

The focus of our efforts has been on sustainable improvement of the hiking trail system, management and understanding of the various invasive species that endanger the bluffs, and sharing this knowledge with the general public and our supporters. Thanks to partnerships with the City of Red Wing, Live Healthy Red Wing, Red Wing Shoe Company, X-cel Energy Company, and the Red Wing School District (sponsoring Earth Day wirk events) we have made great strides 

We are now looking to expand our efforts, and need to engage the community in a new way. By partnering with organizations like Red Wing Area Mountain Bike Organization (R.A.M.B.O.), Live Healthy Red Wing, and others with similar missions, we will be able to increase the number of people and families who are being active and enjoying the great outdoors, helping restore the native prairies, and share the full history of our beautiful bluffs.
