Tri-Yak-A-Thon Oct. 12, The Public Is Welcome

The Gunn Park Trails volunteers would like to invite everyone to enjoy the fall weather and join us for the 7th annual Tri-yak-a-thon.

This year’s proceeds will benefit Fort Scott Paws & Claws Animal Shelter.

The event will take place October 12 at 10:00 AM in Gunn Park.

The Tri-yak-a-thon is a race where participants run on Gunn Park’s beautiful trails, kayak up and down the Marmaton River, and then tackle the trails again on a bike.

The goal of the event is to have fun and raise money to support the animal shelter.

The trail run is a 5K, the kayak portion is another 5K, and the bike portion is a 10K.

Participate as a relay team, or if you are tough enough you can do the entire race as a solo participant.

You must bring your own kayak, life jacket, helmet, and mountain bike.

Riders must wear a helmet.


Onsite registration and packet pickup will be from 8:00 to 9:45 AM at Shelter House 6.

You can register online at

The race will begin at 10:00 AM.  Whether you enter the race or just come and cheer, please join us and support our park, our trails, and our animal shelter.
