Hey Runners,

Come explore the “Acres” and SVTR while helping to raise funds for the Site and adding yet another trail running option in Central Illinois.

All events use 2 miles of the woods then proceed their respective distance on the SVTR for the 5k, 10k or Half Marathon with both longer distances crossing many brand new bridges and the Half crossing the Sangamon River.

There will be on course support for all runners, custom gender specific race shirts, Finisher Medals for all, post event food and drinks and Awards ceremony.
