By From page A7 | August 22, 2014

The third annual Crazy Eights Trail Run Series concludes Sunday at Lake Camanche, South Shore Recreation Area, Turkey Hill Equestrian Campground.

The Crazy Eight’s trail runs was created for anyone of any ability to participate. That’s not to say there won’t be challenging terrain. The past two trail runs offered runners a choice of either an 8K or 8-mile distances. For the upcoming final event, participants can still choose trail-run distances between the two “8s,” or a half-marathon. The trails are hilly, scenic, and hard-packed.

Fees: $40 for each race, or sign up for all three runs for only $35 each. The half-marathon registration is $60, or $55 if runners participate in the previous two events. Add $5 for same-day registration.

Registration includes a custom T-shirt, customized Crazy Eights Barking Frog performance headwear, barbecue, and beer garden post-event for people 21 and over. Awards will be given to first place in each age group in 10-year brackets, and overall men and women’s winners receive a special Pearl Izumi prize pack.

The campground is located at 11700 Wade Lane, Wallace. Directions is take Highway 12 east to Camanche Parkway/South Shore entrance, enter the kiosk, and Turkey Hill Trail Head staging area is on the right hand side, 30 yards past the kiosk.
