The Mendota Bottoms Trail run consists of 10 Mile and 5k runs along the scenic Minnesota River on the Ft. Snelling Park trail starting in Mendota. Proceeds from the race will be donated to the Ft. Snelling State Park to maintain the trail.

This year we will be again enjoying the trails on the airport side of the river. Damage to the trail prevents us from getting our safety equipment to cover the full Mendota side trail.

The race donated $1,800 to Ft Snelling State Park in 2017 for maintaining the trail!

Over the last four years we have raised over $5,100 for the park.

The money has been used to repair the bridges, manage the washout area south of Hwy 55 bridge, and purchase equipment to maintain the trail.
