Yellowstone Trail Road Race getting a reboot
The Central St. Croix Chamber will host the Yellowstone Trail Road Race on Saturday, Oct. 13, starting at 9 a.m. at the Hazel Mackin Community Library.
From 2010-2015, Tera Busker and Lisa Christensen organized and directed the Yellowstone Trail Road Race in celebration of the Yellowstone Trail that originally ran through St. Croix County. This year, the chamber will give the race a reboot in conjunction with other events being held throughout St. Croix County.
The 5K race will start at the Hazel Mackin Community Library at 9 a.m. with registration starting at 8 a.m. in the parking lot next to the library. The community is welcome to run or walk the 5K; afterwards there will be a Kids Fun Run free for all kids 12 years of age and younger.
The race is a fundraiser for the Roberts-Warren Fire Department with proceeds going to purchase personal protection gear and supplies.
The Yellowstone Trail was the first transcontinental automobile tourist road in the United States running from Plymouth Rock to Puget Sound. The road was traveled from 1912 to 1930 and ran through St. Croix County from Baldwin to Roberts on Highway 12 and County Road TT onto Hudson.
