We become a teenager!
Come spend a special morning with us on September 2, 2013 as we celebrate being around for 13 years. We want to welcome back all those who have supported us in the past years, and want to invite new runners and walkers who may want to spend their Labor Day morning getting some exercise. Although we have grown over the years, we still offer a hometown race with a hometown feel. More than 230 hardy folks joined us last year to experience racing through quiet village streets, along a creek and through one of the village parks.
We add to the hometown touch by offering homemade cookies prepared by some of the best bakers in Seville. Runners and walkers get to vote for their favorite cookie, giving the proud creator bragging rights for a whole year.
The 2013 Run for the Trails 2013 race page has a list of age groups award categories; a link to online registration at signmeup.com; a link to download a paper registration form; day of race registration opening time; race start time, and driving directions.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
2012 Cookie Champ
The Run for the Trails cookie baking contest was another hotly contested event, too. The contest was started three years ago to recognize those anonymous bakers who provided the wonderful homemade treats for runners and walkers at the end of the 5K event. Runners and walkers are encouraged to sample each offering, then vote for their favorite. This years winner is Sandy Bridenthal with her Salted Carmel Chocolate Bars. Kara Kauffman, last year’s winner (see below) returned to defend her title with Pay Day bars and her 2011 prize-winning peanut butter crisp bars.
Other bakers in alphabetical order were:
Thank you to everyone who baked for our racers and had a little additional fun participating in the contest.
Voted the 2011 favorite
This was the second year for the Favorite Cookie Contest. For years, bakers had worked in anonymity as they donated their time and materials to provide delicious homemade treats at the end of the race/walk. We thought they should be recognized, so set up a system where runners and walkers could vote for their favorite post-race treat. This turned out to be a hit with both participants and bakers. Twelve bakers competed this year. Kara Kauffman topped the list with her entry of Peanut Butter Crisp Bars. Kara’s name has been added to a traveling plaque.
Of course we (the Run For The Trails committee) were eager to try our hand at duplicating Kara’s Peanut Butter Crisp Bars. The bars have a deliciously crispy crunch with is enveloped by a smooth, peanut-buttery exterior. And, yes, they are pretty darn tasty! But, alas, it is not to be. Kara is a very kind and generous person but she is not ready to part with the secret recipe just yet. She is currently in basic training in the Air Force. She plans on returning in 2012 to defend her cookie title. She also ran in the last year’s race and is hoping to improve on her finishing time. We all wish Kara the best of luck in basic training, her running – and in her cookie baking.
Here is the order of finish:
First Place : Kara Kauffman (Peanut Butter Crisp Bars)
Runners-up in alphabetical order:
Leigh Ann Coudriet
Thank you all for providing a tasty finish for all event partitipants!
