Abe’s Trail Trek – Awards Update

Greetings Runners,

As mentioned we are always looking for ways to make our events better and we have huge news for the November 12th Abe’s Trail Trek.

Thanks to Darrell and Tina Simmermaker from West of Wise Winery, we will be awarding their incredible wines to the Overall Winners (male and female) in the 10k and Half Marathon events.

West of Wise was on site last year with their generous support and the best part is the Simmermakers are runners who run the trails and roads with us and you.

So say hi to them and when the races are over drive less than a mile to the West of Wise Winery on Rt. 97 just south of the New Salem entrance and enjoy some wine and check out the winery.

We are also working on really cool awards for the Overall 5k winners but still finalzing details but the awards are prints of the historic Grist Mill you will run by on your trail advernture.

These are prints from a hand painted canvas done by a local artist and will soon be collectors items related to the Lincoln History.

Updates will follow once plans are finalized but needless to say these are very uique and some lucky winners will be taking home a part of the Lincoln lore.

We will be clearing and marking the courses this weekend and next week so get out to the trails and check them out and run, run, run.

Thanks to Dr. Mike Gensler and Jamie from Petersburg Spine and Sport we will have safe, enjoyable trails and Dr. Mike and company will be on site to answer your sport medicince questions after they run.

The fastest in all events get some pretty cool awards like no other trail runs offer anywhere in the US.

We have WINE from West of Wise Winery, Paintings from the Menard County Trails and Greenways, Nature made but hand crafted Stone plaques from Chapman Stone and handmade ceramic awards from the New Salem Lincoln League and food from Keri’s Kitchen in Petersburg.

What more do you need for an incredbile trail run?

We have awesome trails, very unique awards, great food and a site tied to the nation’s greatest president all in a venue second to none.

Trek On.
