Buffalo Trace 5-Mile Race

On May 22 there are a plethora of trail running options for us Illinoisans.  I will be running the CRUD 8-Hour trail run at Jubilee College State Park near Peoria, IL.  First time for this timed event.  Others may be close to Chicago and doing one of the new Des Plaines River Trail races.  Another first year event.  For those in central Illinois, I encourage you to run the Buffalo Trace 5-Mile Trail Race.  I started this race back in 2003 and it has been going strong under different race directors ever since.  It's held in Mahomet, IL at the Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve.  Nice 5-mile trail.  Not too hard, not too easy.  Perfect first trail race. 

So, what trail race are you doing on May 22?

The Lake of the Woods trail is also the site of the Buffalo Trace 7-Day Stage Race (May 30-June 5).

Hey Chris. I am doing the Des Plaines River Trail Race, marathon version. My first marathon in 10 years. Just did my last long run today, 22 miles. It's going to be a slow one for me but I'll finish and hope before all the 50 milers finish. I have 12 years LOL
Cheers
