Hi All,

Thank you for taking part in the 2023 Endless Summer Trail Run Series Lebanon 7MI at Lebanon Hills County Park in Eagan last week. With this year’s race just a day after the holiday we were able to share it with runners from 14 states, likely an ESTRS record. A couple of days of rain leaning up and we still had perfectly dry trails, that is just some of the magic that Lebanon Hills Park offers up. I had the pleasure of marking the trails on Tuesday night, checking the markings on Wednesday and doing a once-over on Thursday – completing three loops in three days. No matter how many times I do that loop, I never get tired of it – we are all super fortunate to have this park in our ‘backyard’. Near-perfect weather made for an uber-pleasant social hour, did you meet your one new person?

A huge thank you to Dakota County Parks for hosting us and taking such great care of the park and trail system. As big of a thanks to Chapel Hills Church for allowing us to use their parking lot.

All credit is due to our amazing volunteers, thank you!
