Lawrence Trail Hawks 8th annual Skyline Shuffle 5k
The name has changed, but the fun continues! With damage to our beloved red trail not yet repaired, the Skyline course has become permanent. 2016 will feature the same course as 2015. This course features a winding path to the crest of bunker hill and a beautiful morning view of a spring sunrise over Clinton lake. A jaunt through the woods includes a chance to get your feet wet. After emerging from the trees you once again summit Bunker Hill, keeping your eyes open for Sky Clintie. After bounding down Bunker hill with the finish line in sight, your journey is complete and the celebration may begin. Snacks at the finish, awards for first three male and female finishers, and swag for all entrants. Hope to see you there!
The Legend of Sky-Clintie by: Gary Henry
Just in case you never heard the legend of Sky-Clintie, the official mascot of the Skyline Shuffle 5K Trail Race:
Local time: 4:55 PM
Back in the old Paleozoic days, when all of Kansas was a shallow inland sea, the skies above what is now Clinton Lake were filled with pterodactyls. It is said that a mutant descendant of these creatures still nests within Bunker Hill, emerging to hunt sometimes, from a secret exit in the ruins of the old school house. They call her "Sky-Clintie."
