Terra Sans Pave - Linne WoodsEarthbound Races in Unpaved Places!
Thursday September 6th - 12:00 Noon CDT
Race week is upon us and we're looking forward to seeing all Terra runners this Saturday on the trails of Linne Woods! Participant check in, and packet pick up will take place from 7:00 am to 8:45 am at our race start/finish location at Grove #2 (see map below). Parking is nearby, within steps of our start/finish pavilion. Please watch for our "race alert email," which will blast to all participants on race-eve at 8:00 pm, Friday Sep 7th, and will include race-day details, rules of competition, and updated trail conditions.
As of today... bacause of area flodding and forecast for more rain we're expecting to make use of an alternate racecourse. The alternate course will start/finish at the same pavilion and will be a mix of grass, gravel trail, and some paved trail. It's my intention to keep the distance of 4 kilometers / ~2.5 miles per lap. We remain committed to providing a safe, challenging, fun and memorable race for all participants!
Prepare for primordial running, through forested trail and over green fields, full of fun & adventure but void of pavement.

Our 2018 Terra Sans Pave - Linne Woods trail runs takes place entirely within Region 4: North Cook County, nearby the North Branch Trail system of the Forest Preserve District of Cook County, in Morton Grove. Linne Woods, Grove #2 pavilion serves as race start / finish area and our aid station.
Terra Sans Pave is ideal for first-time trail runners, and those experienced runners looking to post a fast time for "not too technical" trail racing. A variety of surfaces make up the racecourse for Terra Sans Pave... crushed gravel, dirt and wood-chip paths comprise about 90% of the course, with sections traversing grassy fields. You'll cross two bridges on each lap, and even run along the river bank. 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 occasional rocks & roots, and small slightly rolling hills. Each lap is 4 kilometers (~2½ miles) in length.
