About This Event
DeKalb County's 3rd Annual Trail Run in its premier Forest Preserve. Winding through native growth timber on wide trails and single track as well as on prairie trail along the Kishwaukee River. Some trails are rustic and with steep inclines to test your mettle! And maybe some mud! We will run, rain or shine. The 2K Run/Walk also travels through the woods on the main lane; flat and even, but still beautiful. We will have a water stop at the half way point of both races and at end.
