The Lula Laker: Mountain Miler Race For Conservation Set For May 15-16

Friday, February 26, 2021

Lula Lake Land Trust announces the “Lula Laker: Mountain Miler” fundraising trail race for Spring 2021. This independent race is designed for avid runners and mountain bikers with two course options you can’t find anywhere else. Entrants can choose between a 10-mile or an 18-mile course that traverses Lula Lake’s trail systems—taking them on a trip through the heart of nature with a 2,000-foot elevation gain.

"Like most organizations struggling with fundraising events during the pandemic, LLLT is no different, organizers said. "Regularly scheduled signature fundraisers are still on hold, but the organization found a way to offer safe recreational opportunities while raising crucial funds for conservation and trail building efforts."
 
“The Mountain Miler is the first in a 3-race series for 2021,” says Matthew Hubbard, LLLT director of development.

“The outpouring of support for last year’s race brought recreation to the forefront of our community’s mind. We wanted to continue to offer this unique way for adventure-seekers to both enjoy and support our conservation efforts.”
 
Divided between two days, runners will compete on Saturday, May 15 and mountain bikers will compete on Sunday, May 16 in this socially distant, independent race. Registrations will be divided into windows of start times each day, and each participant is responsible for tracking their race time through Strava GPS tracking. The process allows race entrants to show up, check-in with minimal social interaction, and hit the trails with a 5 p.m. deadline to finish. The top three runners and top three mountain bikers will receive a one-of-a-kind trophy.
 
The Lula Laker requires a $55 registration fee to compete with optional commemorate t-shirt add-on. 100 percent of this fee goes directly back into LLLT’s trail work and conservation efforts. Each entrant receives a participation medallion. Registration and more details are available online at www.LulaLake.org/events.
 
The Lula Laker is sponsored by Southeastern Salvage Home Emporium.
