Chester Rim 5K
The Chester Rim 5K starts in Chester Park and utilizes the beautiful Chester Rim Trail, part of the Duluth Traverse multi-use trail that runs from one end of the City to the other. We'll also drop down below Skyline to complete the loop along Chester Creek and its waterfalls and gorge. This loop is flowing, fast and fun!
Duluth Winter Trailrunning Series
The Duluth Winter Trailrunning Series (DWTS) is a new series of fun, challenging and unique trail running races taking place primarily on the wonderful snowpacked fat bike trails in Duluth, MN. The trail running series will take advantage of the extensive system of packed multi-use fat bike trails that snake throughout the City of Duluth and provide incredible and unique opportunities for trail runners to explore the amazing topography and views of Duluth in the winter. Locals find the packed fat bike trails to be even more fun to run in the winter than when they're snow free!
Local time: 6:32 AM
We've selected a few of the most fun, scenic and popular routes for winter trail runners. This years winter trail running series will start at Chester Park, move to Lester Park where we'll revive a winter classic on an all new course, move to a local ski slope for a Wild Winter Wipeout of grinding ups and bombing fast descents and then finish with a 10K on a quintessential route in the heart of Duluth at Hartley Park.
