All participants who sign up by September 19th for either race or the challenge will get a buff and anyone who signs up for the challenge (both races) will also get a shirt.
This year’s race is virtual. You have the option this year to run where you like as long as you run the designated length of the race selected.
you can choose to run the actual course located in Kickapoo State Park Recreation Area, west of Danville, IL. Take I-74 to exit 206 or 210 and follow the signs to the park. Both courses start near the Meadow Shelter. You can run the 7.45 Wilderness Trail, the 5K Clear Pond Trail, or both trails. You will enjoy a rugged course in the woods, where you will climb and descend steep hills and cross creeks and bridges. If you are lucky, you may even see a deer, turkey, or other wildlife. This is a scenic and challenging run!
