The race course is nestled inside the hilly and heavily wooded 966 acre of Linn County Pinicon Ridge Park. The 1.2 mile trail loop features a sledding hill, creek crossing, and multiple stairs mostly on woodland trails. Each loop has approximately 215 feet of elevation gain.
The LoKeyz Trail Runners brings you the Woodpecker Six, a six hour endurance run this November! Come join us for a low key race that will test your sanity as you see how many miles you can run in the 6 hour format. Run and walk as much or as little as you would like. Course direction will change every two hours so you can enjoy the beauty of the trail in both directions! It is a great opportunity to run further and/or longer than you ever have thought possible. Maybe you will peck away at your first trail half, marathon or even ultra distance.
Race will include generous amounts of hearty hot aid station foods and tasty warm and cold beverages at the start/finish line, a long sleeve race shirt, lots of encouragement to continue to peck away at just another loop, any additional funds will be donated to the Pinicon Ridge Park to use for trail improvements. Special awards to male and female top mileage.
Woodpecker lodge will have available space inside the heated lodge for a runner drop bag. If you prefer, the lodge has ample space outdoors to use for a canopy and staging area as well. This is Iowa so come prepared for all seasons, race will go on rain or snow!
