Upcoming Rec De Plaza runs from ‘Polecat to Yellowstone’

Posted

This year’s Rec De Plaza features a revamped course with a one-way, 10K downhill thrill run and a shorter, less adventurous 5K.

The event is set for Saturday, June 29.

From a start line perched atop Polecat Bench that features breathtaking views of the Powell Valley below, the 10K course features a challenging descent. The route will lead runners off the bench and east on the dirt Lane 6 to a halfway aid station on Road 10.

Entrants can choose an abbreviated 5K option which starts at the halfway station.

The second 5K begins on Road 10’s paved blacktop and heads south to Seventh Street. A left turn on Seventh takes participants to the finish line at Division Street, near Northwest College’s Yellowstone Building.

Race day registration/check-in will run from 7-7:30 a.m. at Northwest College Yellowstone Building parking lot, on the corner of Seventh and Division streets. Bus transportation to the start line leaves at 7:30 a.m. The deadline for entries is this Friday to be guaranteed a T-shirt on Race-Day. The entry fee is $25 (including the shirt) with a $5 fee for a seat on the bus.

Entry forms are available at the Powell Recreation District, the Powell Tribune and the Powell Aquatic Center.
