Note: Ample parking is available at Blue Star Memorial Woods grove, which is on the south side of Lake Ave.

Our Terra Sans Pave - Blue Star race takes place entirely within Region 4: North Cook County, nearby the North Branch Trail system of the Forest Preserve District of Cook County, in Glenview. Blue Star Memorial Woods, Grove #2 pavilion serves as race start / finish area and our aid station.

Our Terra Sans Pave race is ideal for first-time trail runners and those looking to post a fast time for "shorter-distance trail racing." A variety of surfaces make up our Terra Sans Pave racecourse... crushed gravel and paved trail paths comprise about 80% of the course, with sections traversing grassy fields. You'll cross two trail-bridges on each lap, and may even catch glimpses of the North Branch of the Chicago River. There are no man-made obstacles, nor river crossings but conditions may be muddy especially with rainy weather in the week leading up to race day. Expect mostly smooth, non-technical running with slightly rolling hills. Each lap is 4 kilometers (~2.485 miles) in length.
