Meraki is a Greek word which means “to do something with passion, with absolute devotion, with undivided attention”. There are many answers to why our participants participate in our events, but they all can agree on the fact, when they are running/walking the trails, they are doing so with passion, devotion, and undivided attention.
The Meraki Trail Run is 4.5, 9.0, or 13.5 miles of immersion in the experience of trail running in the spring. Bullfrogs and songbirds will be your soundtrack. Muskrats, deer, forest, and wildflowers will be your backdrop. The new spring grass will give you the bounce in your step to complete your chosen distance (or perhaps more)!
Dirty Dog Dare is the CaniCross companion event to the Meraki Trail Run and is the final event of the 2019-20 CaniCross season. CaniCross athletes will have a choice of 3.5 or 7.0-mile events as a final test of their trail fitness.
This event is perfect for all fitness levels and is dog-friendly for those not interested in participating in the CaniCross Event.
