Twenty kilometers is 12.4 miles, or nearly a half-marathon. It takes most runners over two hours to cover that distance on nicely paved streets. Now imagine running up hills and over streams, through dense woods and over rocks of all sizes. It's like hiking, just a whole lot faster.

That's what trail runners will tackle on April 13 in beautiful Petit Jean State Park of Arkansas. And it's all benefiting Heifer International.

Hoof It for Heifer is a unique fundraiser for athletes who like a challenge, and from last year's reviews, it sounds like a lot of fun.
