Earthbound Races in Unpaved Places!

Tuesday August 25th - 8:00 am CDT
Race week is upon us and we're looking forward to seeing all Terra runners this Saturday and Sunday, at the forest preserves of Linne Woods!
For each runner "Day of Participation" assignments are available through our "Who's Registered" listing (click button under "Registration" tab).
Online registration may be open until Friday 6:00 pm CDT. Depending upon daily capacities of 50 runners maximum we may have Sunday limited onsite race-day registration at runner check-in, near our race start / finish area, Linne Woods, Grove #2... no guarantee on shirt availability.
Friday by/before 7:00 pm... a race-day email alert message will be sent to all registered participants. This alert will include race-day details, rules of competition, and last-minute instructions. Please keep an eye open for arrival of your email alert.
All packet pickup will take place onsite at our start/finish area, beginning at 6:45 am CDT. Terathlon 8-Hour will commence at 7:30 am. Big Lizard 10-Mile and Terra 8-Km will start at 9:00 am!

Friday August 21st - 8:00 am CDT - Registration Reopened for Sunday Racing!
Our permit request has been approved to extend racing into Sunday August 30th, which allows for an additional 50 runners. We've reopened Registration for runners who'd like to participate on Sunday. Those who signed up on our Terra Wait List have registration priority into their desired event.
Sunday event starting times will match Saturday's... 7:30 am for Terathlon 8-Hour; 9:00 am for Big Lizard 10-Mile and Terra 8-Km.
If you registerd prior to August 18th, or at point of registration were not prompted to choose a Day of Participation, you're automatically set for Saturday racing. If you're a Saturday runner and would like to switch to Sunday, please email your request by/before Tuesday August 25th.
Watch this space for further updates!

Tuesday August 18th - 8:00 am CDT
Under the guidelines of Restore Illinois Phase 4 our permit allows a maximum of 50 runners per day. We've met capacity for Saturday racing.
We've opened a Wait List for runners who missed out on Saturday registration but still want to be part of this year's Terra Sans Pave Trail Runs. It's possible, though unlikely that some runners may opt out of Saturday racing, which could open spots for others. However, there's a better chance that a critical mass of 30+ runners might wait list for Sunday racing. If enough runners sign up for Sunday racing we'll apply for an extended permit and spread racing over both days of the weekend, Saturday and Sunday - August 29th & 30th.
There is no charge to register for our Terra Wait List. Chronological order of registration will determine potential race participation as spots are available. Wait listers will be notified once they're eligible for race participation, and it will be their responsibility to make payment and complete their race registration. Watch this space for registration updates!

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 2 miles (~4 kilometers) in length.
