KATY Trail 50/50
The KATY 50/50 is a 50 kilometer, 50 mile & (every other year) a 100-kilometer trail race local to STL, Washington, and surrounding Missouri areas.
The DRC is excited to once again share our well-traveled stretch of rail-to-trail for the day. Gain your grit for the year or use this as time on dirty feet for your fall 100s. The KATY Trail is a phenomenal community landmark for local runners and we hope to continue bringing both notoriety, enjoyment and competition to this outdoor resource.
The Facebook page will host all information and results throughout the day: https://www.facebook.com/katy5050/
