Earthbound races in unpaved places!

Our inaugural Terra Sans Pave trail runs took place Saturday, September 13th at Linne Woods Forest Preserve in Morton Grove, Illinois. 25 intrepid trail runners braved the unseasonably cool weather... 17 raced eight kilometers while eight opted for our 1-lap tour of four kilometers.

9:00 am race time official weather statistics: 47F, partly cloudy, with NW winds of 13 mph, 77% humidity. Our racecourse was saturated from persistent rain that fell during the lead-up to race-day. Trail sections had "sometimes skirtable" puddles, punctuated with many soft-mud spots while grassy stretches remained wet with morning dew. Volunteers were deployed at critical turns to keep runners "on course." A handful of downed trees lay randomly across the trail allowing runners a chance to demonstrate their "bounding prowess." As they warmed up, more than one 8-km participant shed a layer of clothes upon completion of their first lap.

Afterward... participants and volunteers gathered for refreshments and to share tales of their trail-running adventures. Judging by the smiles and skyward-pointed thumbs... a good time was had by all!
