The Ericson Lake Corporation proudly presents the 3rd annual Trail Mix Fun Run to be held on Saturday, July 21, 2018 at Lake Ericson, located one mile south of Ericson, Nebraska. 


The Trail Mix Fun Run is a non-competitive trail run for walkers and runners of all ages and levels.  With the rolling Sandhills as a backdrop, the 5K level course will weave you around beautiful Lake Ericson through a rural mixture of trails consisting of gravel, dirt, and sand.  Do you feel like a more adventurous and challenging trail run?  Choose the 7K option that takes you into our scenic hills just west of the lake where the trails are tree lined and parts are canopied.  Enjoy the native wildflowers and grasses that adorn the beautiful hillsides around the lake. The 7K portion of the trail consists of a variety of terrain (i.e sand, wood chips, dirt/mud, various tripping hazards) and includes many ups and downs. Due to these conditions, the 7K is not recommended for those with baby strollers.


As a non profit organization, the Ericson Lake Corporation strives to protect and promote wildlife and water conservation as well as to provide an environment in which to enjoy it.  With your help we can raise much needed funds and increase awareness that will enhance the conservation and sustainability of Lake Ericson.

Online Registration will close on July 15th!
