Harriman trail run returns Saturday

Now starting at Prairie Creek


     Galena Lodge 23 miles north of Ketchum has re-opened following the Beaver Creek Fire and is planning its Harriman-Boulder 10-mile trail run for Saturday, Aug. 31.

     There has been one change from last year, when the event started at Baker Creek.

     Although the U.S. Forest Service has re-opened the Harriman Trail, Erin Zell of Galena Lodge said Wednesday, “They (the USFS) asked us if we could start at Prairie Creek instead this year.

     “So officially the run will go from Prairie Creek to Galena Lodge, and around the Titus Nordic loop and finish at Galena Lodge for about a nine-mile run instead of 10 miles.”

     Saturday’s race will start at 10 a.m. at Prairie Creek and proceed to Galena Lodge along the Harriman trail.

     All racers will be treated to lunch after the race. Entry fee is $25. For details call 726-4010.

     Last year’s Labor Day weekend running of the Harriman Trail event attracted 50 solo runners and a pair of two-person relay teams. Men’s winner was Miles Fink Debray in 1.10:03. Boise’s Jenny Tobin paced the women in 1.14:48.
