See you all next year on Saturday, October 7th!

Run in the peaceful autumn beauty of Northern Illinois’ premier Moraine Hills State Park. The courses are set completely within the park on asphalt and crushed limestone trails (no traffic!). Expect rolling hills and spectacular scenery. This is a race you shouldn’t miss.

Half Marathon - $49
10K - $39

Note: Registration Limit: 400 runners - Don’t wait!

8:30 a.m.for both distances (wave start by PACE, faster runners first)

NOTE: Course support (water stations and course marshals) will end at 11:45 a.m. Runners still on the course after this time will be notified, and should they choose to finish, will be monitored by a race official and their finish will be timed.

All runners receive our signature “keychain” finisher medal, a L/S tech shirt and post-race nutrition. Place medals and prizes go to the top three M/F winners in each distance. Medals also go to the top three M/F winners in each age group: 19 and under, 20 – 24, 25 – 29, 30 – 34, 35 – 39, 40 – 44, 45 – 49, 50 – 54, 55 – 59, 60 – 64, 65 – 69, 70 - 74, 75 - 79, 80+.

Water and Gatorade stations are at approximately every 2 miles and the finish.
