Huff Hills to host all terrain run

To kick off the Mandan Fourth of July celebration for the second consecutive year, Huff Hills Ski Area will be hosting a 5K All Terrain Run at the ski area south of Mandan on Saturday, June 29.

There will be over 12 natural and man-made obstacles on the course through the hills. Spectators will have the option to be transported to the top of the hill via chair lifts during the event to better observe participants as they progress through the obstacles. Close circuit cameras will be placed throughout the course allowing participants and spectators to watch participants while enjoying either the sunshine or shade of the natural surroundings.

Beverages, food, vendors and music will be provided for further enjoyment by spectators and participants.  A giant fireworks display will close out the event that evening.

A total of $2,000 in prize money will be awarded to winners; plus participants will be eligible for an additional $100 each in prizes for merely competing.

Register on line at huffhills.eventbrite.com. A discounted registration fee of  $55 per person will be available until May 1.

A portion of the proceeds will be going to the Bismarck Cancer Center.
