About the Big Wood Fish Run
The Fish Run is a race that asks racers to run, catch a fish, and drink a beer (although that last part is optional). The Big Wood Fish Run is an irreverent event that almost dares you to not take it seriously. But, the 13 mile course and challenge to catch a fish in a section of river loaded with other competitors is nothing to sniff at. This event will take strategy, cunning, and a willingness to think outside the box. Will you try to catch a fish right out of the gate? Will you run the fastest and go for the "Hail Mary" hole right above the finish line? And don't discount the beer chug: If you can drink a beer in under 60 seconds (without spilling a drop!), you'll get 5 minutes knocked off your total time.
About the Fun Run
The Fun Run is about 3 miles long, and runs through the Wood River Land Trust's Greenway trail. Racers will stage their gear at the Colorado Gulch Parking lot (approx. 1.5 miles away from the start gate), and will then head back to Lion's Park for the start. Racers will run from Lion's Park down to Colorado Gulch, grab their fishing gear, and attempt to catch a fish as they make their way back to Lion's Park.
