Description: Union Grove Trail Races will be ran for the first time in 2020. Just a couple miles off of the interstate you wouldn't think there would be such a great little park waiting there to be ran, hiked, or biked. Union Grove is a mix of woods and prairie with rolling hills throughout. The trail is multi-use and is generally 6ft wide in most places with a defined track. It's mostly gravel and hard packed dirt but there are sections with roots and grass too. The races will start/finish in the same place, a day use area with a small parking lot and vault toilet. The races will head directly onto the trail and complete a loop for the 4 mile finish while the 8 mile runners will repeat the loop for a second time. There is a modern comfort station (bathroom, shower, sink, water fountain) in the camping area of the park if needed. There is also a wonderful 1 mile single track trail that loops through a different section of the park that is a must run for a warmup or cool down. Video of course: https://youtu.be/ZNh0HU-gYZk
