Three Rivers' Signature Races

The Signature Races feature annual events produced by Three Rivers that provide an opportunity for individuals, teams and local businesses to foster a community of healthy and active lifestyles by challenging each other and celebrating the changing seasons in the Twin Cities. Race courses showcase stunning views of natural areas across Three Rivers parks and trails.

Based on current health guidelines issued by the Minnesota Department of Health, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Fat Bike Rennet. We are exploring options to create a stand-alone Fat Bike event later this winter as guidelines and scheduling allows.

Experience tradition! Trail Mix Race turns 30 this year and is one of Minnesota’s oldest trail runs! The Trail Mix course weaves though the gently rolling big woods and natural wetland landscape of Lake Rebecca Park Reserve. Distances of 12.5K, 25K and 50K offer new and experienced trail runners an opportunity to visit one of the West Metro’s premier parks and kick off the trail running season.
