Hi All,

Thank you for taking part in the 2022 Endless Summer Trail Run Series Spring Lake 5 Mile race at Spring Lake Park in Hastings this past Thursday. From the high energy start, great sightlines in that first mile, the cool(ish) forest, technical single-track, the stone bridge, big energy coming through the water stop, the unique steel bridge, open oak forests, incredible wildflowers, the quiet pine section and the raucous finish – it was a night to remember! It was super fun to introduce quite a few people to ESTRS for their first time – we welcome you all back next year. As always it was wonderful to run together and see folks stick around and enjoy each others company after – I met my two new people, did you?  It is hard to believe the 2022 ESTRS season is already over, I am always left wanting more, but that is part of the series charm… we are already excited for next year!  Thank you for making 2022 an outstanding year.

 

A huge thank you to Spring Lake Park / Dakota County Parks for hosting us and taking such great care of the park and trail system. A huge thank you is also due to our amazing volunteers, TCRC and all of our sponsors!
