|Race Name:||New Leaf Ultra Runs Indiana Dunes 25K/50K Trail Run|
|Date:||Saturday July 23rd, 2011 - 7:00 am|
|Location:||Indiana Dunes State Park, 1600 N 25E Chesterton|
|State:||Indiana, United States|
|New Leaf Ultra Runs is proud to present a non-organized, fun run/walk at the Indiana Dunes State Park on Saturday, July 23rd. Run anywhere from one to thirty-one miles on the beautiful trails near Lake Michigan. It's going to be a fun-filled 3-day event with options to camp 1, 2 or 3 days from Friday the 22nd - Sunday the 24th. This event is set up for the run ONLY, but we welcome you the night before and after the run as well.|
A scenic and varied course of 15.5 miles will meander through grassland, the lakeshore, a bog, boardwalks, loose and packed dirt and sand, crushed stones, and hilly dunes. But again, this is a laid-back fun run and not an organized race, so do whatever your heart desires as you need not complete a full loop. For those wanting an extra challenge, we will run an extra the loop for a full 31 miles (50K). There is no fee, schwag, bib, etc. to be concerned about. Just show up and run/hike/camp/visit with your family and friends.
We will also be swimming, so bring your suit, towel, chair and sunscreen! Dogs are allowed on the trails we will be utilizing and on the beach except for a small swimming area. Please visit the Nature Center and walk/hike the trails as desired. There are also bird-watching observation towers as well, so there will be something for everyone as this is a family-oriented event. See you out there!
Anyone who hasn't been to the Indiana Dunes is going to love it ~ it's a beautiful place!
Participate at your own risk. Don't push yourself too hard. Eat, drink, protect yourself from the elements, and seek medical attention when necessary. Bring all the food, drink, and supplies you think you'll need. We look forward to seeing you there.
I ask that you please abide by all Indiana Dunes State Park rules.
There is not a fee associated with this run, but I am asking for an optional $5 or $10 donation towards the support of the New Leaf Ultra Runs running club. Since the New Leaf Ultra Runs is a FREE running club, events like this is how I'd like to support the club.
Also, a percentage of your donations will also help a runner in financial need, as well as, be passed on to the Endure To Cure Foundation, which is a charity I am raising funds for on behalf of the New Leaf Ultra Runs.
There are absolutely no obligations, but if you do decide to donate, you may do so through our club's PayPal account (see below); however, you won't be hounded or even asked for it. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
