Abe’s Trail Trek 10k and Half Marathon Awards – Lincoln League

Hey Runners,

We would like to thank the New Salem Lincoln League for the incredible donation of the handmade ceramic pint glasses for the 10k and Half Marathon Age Group winners.

Working with the Lincoln League we were able to secure the pottery from local artist Kirby Drennan and will be awarding the luck runners on race day.

I have copied the information below from the Lincoln League website.  Please check out the group and their new website.   It was the talented people from the League that created the new maps for the race and community to use on race day and beyond.

The New Salem Lincoln League is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the village by sponsoring special events, craft demonstrations, providing support to the volunteer program, and raising funds necessary to assure the continual care and preservation of this piece of the Heart of America.

The League is operated by a twelve-member Board of Directors, elected each year at the Annual Abraham Lincoln Birthday Dinner in Petersburg, Illinois. There is no committee work involved as a member of the League, and names are not put on any company’s “mailing list.” Helping hands are always welcome, however, from those who do have the time and desire.

We’d like to offer you an opportunity to become a member of the New Salem Lincoln League. In doing so, your gift will help continue the Tradition of this beautiful and unique part of our nation’s past.

Membership entitles you to a 10% discount in the Museum Store. You will also receive the League’s Newsletter — full of happenings and accomplishments. Dues are just $15 per year for both individuals and families.

Based on last years numbers we will be looking at record turnouts for all races.   It is with this turnout that the race can provide not only the awards above but also overall and 1st place in Age Group awards in the 5k.

So the 5k can be a fun/run/walk or you can run like the breeze and get an award.


See you on the trails in November.  Please check out the www.triharderpromotions.com website for the new maps and latest information.   Thanks
