Des Plaines River Trail Races


desplainesrivertrailraces.com

Saturday May 22nd 2010 50 miles, marathon, 1/2 marathon, relays

I just signed up for the marathon at this event. It will be my first marathon in 10 years. I know it'll be a PW time for me and I have 10 hours to finish thanks to the 50 miler. Maybe I'll pitch a tent at the far turnaround and take a nap like a friend once did during a 100 mile race.

Two of the RDs for this event are experienced ultra runners having completed 100 mile races, Marathon des Sables and even Badwater between them. They have also crewed at Badwater.

Looks like a nice set of races. If it wasn't on the same date as the 8-Hour CRUD trail race in Jubilee State Park (Peoria area), I'd do it. Already signed up for Mike & Adam's CRUD timed event. So many races, so little time!

I hear you Chris. The Midwest curse. All Ultras around here seem to clash.

McNaughton - Madcity
Clinton Lake - Lakefront 50
Glacial - Farmdale
HOBO - North Face (NF moved)
DPRT - CRUD
etc
