Placeholder Image

When ‘Ei8hts’ are just not enough, the fourth annual Crazy Ei8hts Trail Run Series will sign off its final leg with an added half-marathon option, on Sunday, Aug. 28, at Lake Camanche. All will be gathering at the South Shore staging area, and meeting up at the Turkey Hill Equestrian Campground, at 11700 Wade Lane in Wallace.

All the Crazy Ei8hts’s trail runs were created so anyone of any ability can participate. The first two trail runs offer runners a choice of either 8K or 8-Mile distances. For the upcoming final date, participants can still choose trail-run distances between the two 8s, or a half marathon. The trails are hilly, scenic, and hard-packed. The Aug. 28 race has an 8:30 a.m. start time.

Pre-registration fees are $40 for either the 8K or 8M events, and $60 for the Half Marathon registration. For race-day registration, add $5. Race-day check-in and registration begins at 7 a.m., with the start of all three races following at 8:30 a.m.

To register for the Crazy Ei8hts Trail Series, participants can download a flyer and mail in with entry fee, or register online at ITS YOUR RACE. For more information call 795-7832 or visit or
