The 2023 race will be held Oct. 21, 2023 at Murphy-Hanrehan Park.

This is a suburban course through a beautiful park. All races are on trails with two miles of single track, although the south end of the course runs like a single track due to the horses. All races will start at 15501 Murphy Lake Blvd, Savage, MN. 

These events are to be competitive and fun. They will be official races, however most of the prizes and awards will be for costumes to go along with the Halloween theme.
