Description: Come run in the beautiful fall colors and under the majestic trees of Camp Tomo Chi Chi Knolls (“The Camp”) in this new event benefitting the Boys & Girls Club of Elgin and in memoriam of Gerald Woollard, longtime cross country at Elk Grove High School. If you are new to trail running, fear not!, as the course is very novice friendly, consisting primarily of wide grass and dirt trails, with a couple of short sections of limestone path and asphalt. At the same time, the undulating terrain will also challenge more experienced trail harriers. Some seasoned runners in the Chicago area may already be familiar with the terrain in and around the race site, as the legendary and very popular “Cross Country Challenge” put on by Vertel’s for many years was held at a property adjacent to The Camp. We will have access to a large indoor lodge for runners, family and spectators in the event of rain and/or chilly temps the morning of the race. There is convenient and free parking at race site. (Note: The Camp is used by Boy Scout troops on weekends and there is a possibility a troop could be camping the day of the race; if this occurs, please respect the privacy of the troop’s campsite.) Race timing will be by Racetime.info and results will also be posted online at racetime.info. Awards will be presented to the overall male and female winners, as well as to the top three male and female age groups finishers. Water and refreshments will be available to participants at finish. NOTE: due to the terrain, baby strollers are discouraged in the race; if you insist on using one, you do so at your own risk.
