Welcome to the Middle Creek Meltdown
Get your legs ready for some of the most beautiful single-track trails and rolling hills outside of La Cygne Kansas. 45 minutes south of Kansas City, we've built trails designed to test your legs and lungs; with 1k feet of elevation per loop, you'll get to experience it head-on. The 15-mile race features three 5-mile loops, the 10-mile race features two 5-mile loops while and the 5-miler is one shot around.
Welcome to La Cygne KS
288 acres to play around at 24942 Saddler Road, La Cygne KS, 66040.
If you're looking to avoid driving on gravel, enter the property through La Cygne at exit Highway 152. If you don't mind getting dirty, you can take the 399th exit.
**Camping is permitted Friday so bring your tent or camper!
Up and down. Down and up. You're going to cover some vertical on a FAST track that was custom-built for trail races - 90% of which is smooth and obstacle-free. Starting off at the bridge the first mile is a double-wide track which is perfect for passing and thinning out the herd. From there you dive into the gorgeous single track and get a chance to experience the topography eastern Kansas has to offer.
Please be aware that this is a trail race and the mileage for the loop/course is approximate and you may end up running a little over the estimated 5MI per loop.
Race registration fees are not refundable under any circumstance; race registrations are not transferable to a future year's event.
