Seventh Annual Terra Sans Pave
Trail Runs
[Logo: Terra Sans Pave]


Wow... our seventh year, and whoa... what a year! Due to the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus/COVID-19 we conducted this year's Terra Sans Pave Trail Runs in accordance to the guidelines of Restore Illinois Phase 4. We limited event capacities to 50 in attendance and spread racing over two days, Saturday and Sunday, August 29th and 30th. All Terathlon 8-Hour runners competed on Saturday, while participants of Big Lizard 10-Mile and Terra 8-Km were balanced between Saturday and Sunday. All runner finishing times for the two days were merged to determine event Overall and Top-runner Results.

Saturday August 29th - 7:33:38 am
Terathlon record holder and last year's top Terathlete, Ed Scheer gave the start command sending this year's field of Terathlon runners onto the racecourse. Their mission... cover as much distance as possible in the span of eight hours. They could continue running along the 2-mile "Big Loop," then as the eight hours ticked down, switch to the quarter-mile "Little Loop," and continue right up to the 8-hour end-of-race signal. Meanwhile traditional-distance runners arrived for check-in and prepared for their race start.

Saturday August 29th - 9:03:38 am
Ed Scheer gave his second start command of the day, this time for traditional distance runners of our Big Lizard 10-Mile and Terra 8-Km. Soon the entire racecourse was populated with Terra Sans Pave runners... a long serpentine line of distance-running trail lizards!

Saturday August 29th - 11:30 am
As traditional distance events were finishing Michelle returned from Tony's Deli with two trays of sandwiches for runners and volunteers. An abundance of sandwhiches made the perfect compliment to our aid station fare for still-running Terathletes in their pursuit of evermore mileage. Year-specific pins were earned by all finishers.

Saturday August 29th - 3:33:38 pm
The end-of-race shout was given and those Terathletes orbiting the Little Loop stopped in their tracks. We wheeled-off their extra Little Loop distance, which we added to their Big Loop count (multiplied-by-2), and calculated Distance Covered for each 8-Hour runner. Year-specific pins were earned by all finishers. Engraved pint-glasses were won by 3-ruuner "Team Achievers" in traditional distance events. Newly minted "Ultra Achiever" heavy medals were earned by all 8-Hour Terathletes who completed the minimum of 11 Big Loops (27.5 miles), and engraved pint-glasses by those who were still running to the eight-hour mark.
