There are plenty of 5K events to keep the Northland moving, but if you want something different and more challenging, the Wild Winter Wipout 5K is what you need to try.

The Wild Winter Wipeout 5K involves participants putting on trail running shoes and running up and and down Spirit Mountain.  Running up and down a snow covered ski hill certainly provides a fun challenge and wipeouts are to be expected.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, January 18.  Registration is $30 through January 9.  After January 9, the registration price increases to $40.  The deadline to register is Friday, January 17.

The Wild Winter Wipeout 5K is part of the Duluth Winter Trailrunning Series.  According to organizers:

The Duluth Winter Trailrunning Series (DWTS) is a new series of fun, challenging and unique trail running races taking place primarily on the wonderful snowpacked fat bike trails in Duluth, MN. The trail running series will take advantage of the extensive system of packed multi-use fat bike trails that snake throughout the City of Duluth and provide incredible and unique opportunities for trail runners to explore the amazing topography and views of Duluth in the winter. Locals find the packed fat bike trails to be even more fun to run in the winter than when they're snow free!
