Trail Conditions for 7-Day Race

The Lake of the Woods trail is in excellent shape. Jeff & Gregg have done a nice job of draining that soggy swamp from the northeast corner of the trail. Jeff's added a few small wooden planks to get across muddy spots on other sections of the trail. We are expecting rain today & tonight, but the weekend should be dry and slightly cooler. Things are looking up! The weather forecast for next week even has the highs in the high 70s (and some low 80s). It's almost too good. The mile 5 sign post (the end of the trail!) is seen in the photo to the left. A whole set of trail photos are embedded in the link at the end of this post.

We now have 20 people signed up for the 7-day event. Check out the list. And for further event information, don't forget the race web site. You can show up and leave whenever you want, but it officially starts at 5am on Sunday, June 15 and ends at 11pm on Saturday, June 21.

The 100th full moon run will be on Wednesday, June 18 at 9pm. Hopefully lots of buffalo will come out and run the trails that night. Come out early and stay late.

Here are recent pictures of the trail posted on Picasa.

Weather looks OK for the week (hot Sunday, but then cooling off)--here is the AccuWeather forecast for Mahomet, IL.
