It’s almost Fall here in Minnesota’s Northland and just one month until “The Women’s Fall Fun Run/Walk Retreat”. Make your plan now to join other adventurous Women who love the outdoors. This first Women’s Fun Trail Run/Walk is being held at Giant’s Ridge September 27, 28 & 29. Giant’s Ridge has over 60 kilometers of beautiful wide trails through the pine and hardwood forests. Lodging for our women’s group is available in the Sports Dorm or at the Villa’s. The Sports Dorm can house up to 96 women. Each of the dorm’s 24 units sleeps up to four in two bunk beds and every room has a private bath and shower. The spacious dorm lobby and meeting room provides a convenient area for group activities plus a large kitchen is available for your food and snacks. The sports dorm rate is an affordable ($65 per night) and is a fun lodging option. If you aren’t interested in sleeping in a bunk bed, lodging is also available at the Villa’s at Giant’s Ridge. Plus there is more fun available. Bring your golf clubs along if you golf since Giants Ridge is famous for its world class golf. The Mesabi bike trail travels past and through Giant’s Ridge so bring your bike if you wish. Kayaks are also available for rent. You won’t run out of fun things to do!
Registration Fee is $20 per participant. Net proceeds go to help support the local (Mesabi East, Gilbert and Virginia) High School Cross Country teams. To properly prepare we need your registration by September 16, 2013 - Thank You !
