Please find more information about the race and register online at the link (which may need to be copied and pasted):

The Lost Creek Hiking Trail runs for 6.5 miles in one direction, on natural surface and can be described as “technical”. It is hilly and the terrain rugged in some locations. The Lost Creek Hiking Trail was developed by the Bluff Country Hiking Club and opened in 2011. The trail was made possible by the generous private land owners who granted permission to access their land along the path. Maintenance is provided by a group of Chatfield volunteers who love the outdoors and beautiful Southeast Minnesota. Please contact Bluff Country Hiking Club secretary, Jenny Bradt at if you have any additional questions.

All proceeds from the Western Days Stampede benefit the Chatfield Cross Country team.
