Real Riddle Run 2021

Me after finishing 28 miles in 2015.
It's almost time for that annual event that we all look forward to: Riddle Run 28-Mile fun run at Lake of the Woods trails. This will be the 22nd year of this fine event. Tom Rice and I have done all previous 21 fun runs and we both plan on being back for the 22nd edition. The founder of Riddle Run, Jeff, has started a parallel event in Townsend, TN in the Great Smoky Mountains. Good for him! But, we all know the "real" Riddle Run happens at Lake of the Woods. So this year RR has become RRR ("Real Riddle Run") to distinguish it from that new, and somewhat fake, version in Tennessee. Gotta go with the OG! 

  • What: Real Riddle Run 22
  • When: Saturday, January 30 at 8:01 am
  • Where: Lake of the Woods original trails
  • Distance: 28 miles (7 x 4-mile loop)
  • Cost: Free
  • Aid: None
No fees, no aid, no goodies, no awards (except for the male and female champions). Just old-fashioned running at its best. It's just running. Run one loop or seven. Past winners can be found on this Google document. Course records: 3:39 (male) and 4:18 (female). 

Tom and I will not set any speed records in 2021, but we will continue our streak of consecutive (real) Riddle Run appearances. Looking forward to #22.
