Luce Line Lace Up:  September 17th

Located in the heart of Minnesota, Hutchinson offers the most beautiful and tranquil rural amenities you can imagine for this new running series. The Luce Line Lace-Up features the Luce Line Trail that winds itself through quiet nature offering a chance for all racers to run alongside the historic Crow River. Hutchinson offers a spectacular city-wide art sculpture exhibit, peppered along the parks and trails; some of which you’ll see in the Jaycee’s Riverside Park and the rest you can take time to see after the race! Hutchinson is home to a natural park reserve, with more wildlife than you can count as you run past. Whether you’re planning to take advantage of the flattest course around for a new PR best, or slow down and enjoy the scenery and enthusiasm of those cheering you on, the Luce Line Lace-Up will find a place in your heart and on your permanent annual race calendar!
