Sandrat Trail Run

Sunday, October 1, 2006.
The Sandrat Trail Run is a 9.5 mile (approx.) trail run. The course is run on the "River Trails" north of the Kaw River and downtown Lawrence, KS.
It is a wonderfully low-key but fast trail race for a small entry fee. This year, we didn't have any "breakfast beer" on hand, due to potential legal constraints...jail time. (Last year, it was "rumored" that a founding Trail Nerd brought some of his own homebrew).

Steve Riley, his family, and the volunteers always do a good job with this race. This year there were 100 finishers in the trail race.

A gaggle of Trail Nerds ran in the race, and most did well. Kyle Amos ran with his wife Stacey. The day before, Kyle took 3rd overall in the 10th fastest time ever at the Flatrock 50-K trail race! Caleb Chatfield (the winner of the same 50K), decided to not run but volunteered for the race.

Many Trail Nerds came home with the coveted Sandrat for an age group or place award:

There is also a 1K Rug Rat event, and this year there were 8 competitors.

Here are 3 Rug Rat finishers. The two on the left are Shane Jones' offspring. The one on the right is Bad Ben's grandson.
