Earthbound Races in Unpaved Places!

Our third annual Terra Sans Pave trail runs took place Saturday September 10th, with a return to the inaugural setting of Linne Woods forest preserve in Morton Grove, Illinois. 54 intrepid trail runners toed the starting line... 12 long distance runners pioneered our Terathlon 8-Hour Run, 19 raced our Big Lizard 10-Mile, 12 went for Terra 8-Km, while 11 opted for our 1-lap tour of Terra 4-Km.

7:30 am race time official weather statistics: temperature of 66.9°F, with a dew point of 64.9°F, 93% humidity, overcast skies, wind WSW at 10.4 mph.  Drizzle and light showers would punctuate the morning hours, but no significant rain fell.  Our course was mostly dry and runnable with a few moderate jump-over puddles, and some soft-muddy sections along the river bank.

At 7:35 am CDT Terathlon 8-Hour runners began repeating laps of our 2½-mile racecourse.  Their mission... cover as much distance as possible in the span of eight hours.  They could continue running along the 2½-mile "Big Loop," then as the eight hours ticked down, switch to our quarter-mile "Little Loop," and continue right up to the 3:35 pm air-horn signal.

Meanwhile traditional-distance runners arrived for check-in and their race start.  At 9:08 am an air-horn blast by race official, Paul Hendrickson signaled the start of events, Big Lizard 10-Mile, Terra 8-Km, and Terra 4-Km.  Soon the entire racecourse was populated with Terra Sans Pave runners... a wonderful long line of distance-running trail lizards!

11:00 am... as Terathletes pursued evermore mileage, and traditional distance events were finishing, a feast of bbq brisket, salads, and home-brewed beer was served by Terra running vets Tom Kohler, Patti Downey, Adam Zamora, and Mike Grabowski.  Year-specific pins were earned by all finishers and medals of gold, silver, and bronze were awarded to top runners.
