Get ready, get set ... for the second annual Terry Badlands Trail Run! On Saturday, June 26, this exciting race takes place right in the middle of the beautiful Terry badlands. The 5K and 10K courses follow the scenic Calypso Trail, just west of Terry. A free one-mile fun run is also planned.
Last year, this race attracted 35 runners, from competitive athletes to casual runners, kids and families, as well as families, friends and spectators from across the state. Organizers are hoping for an even better turnout this year.
