Central Great Basin Running Races

Ready to stretch your legs? Then it's time to head to the Central Great Basin for some running races!

Saturday, February 25 is the Wild Goose Chase in Delta, Utah. It's part of the annual Snow Goose Festival, which celebrates the migrating snow geese that enjoy the fields around Delta and then often overnight on the reservoir. The race is a 5K and 10K run or walk that goes right along the reservoir for part of the route. Sign up by February 24 for discounted price.

Sunday, June 17 is the Snake Valley Slither, a 5K race with beautiful views of Great Basin National Park and the surrounding area. You can enjoy some of the Snake Valley Festival before the race. The website still has info from 2011, but the 2012 version should be up soon.

Ready to try something longer? Head over to Cave Lake for Ely, Nevada's first half-marathon, Take It To The Lake Half Marathon. Run 13.1 miles in a beautiful setting. A kids' one-mile run will also be part of the event.

Know of any other Central Great Basin races? I'd like to know!

I am back on the treadmill. So one day I will join you!

My cousin, her husband, and 2 college-age daughters recently completed a 10k together. I think that is really, really cool!
