The Spencer, Wernli & Wilson Storm the Dam Trail run is a  chip timed trail run which winds through scenic  El Dorado Lake State Park and adjacent private property. The double loop marathon, half marathon and 10K connect to the Teter Nature Trail; with some challenging single track trail.  Depending on rainfall expect some wet and muddy crossings. Storm up the dam and enjoy lake views as you run along the lake shore.  Grassy moderate rolling hills of the Boulder Bluff horse trail await you next, work your way through the Walnut Ridge Trail before crossing the finish line near the amphitheater.

The 5K starts with a storm up the dam, enjoy lake views as you run along the shore, find adventure on a short portion of trail course, cross the Walnut River bridge for a final push on paved surface to the finish line.
