Van Peenen Memorial Park is one of Decorah’s 13 parks that make outdoor fun and staying fit a way of life in Winnesheik County.  The trails are groomed, marked and ready for the more adventurous types.  This area is part of the outstanding 17-mile system of single-track mountain bike trails.  Enthusiasts drive in from all parts of the Midwest to enjoy these trails and here is your chance to challenge your body by running them. The parks were even cause to be mentioned in Men’s Journal magazines “52 Great American Weekends” feature.  Come see why and run!

      Proceeds benefit the Northeast Iowa Montessori School, the Decorah Human Powered Trails and the Decorah Park & Rec.  Day of registration is at 7AM.  Adults line the trail as the race starts for the Little Drifters at 8:00 AM.  General entry prize raffle post race with featured gear from the Decorah Hatchery.
