The Universal Sole Spring Trail Challenge - TWO DISTANCES to Choose From!
*4.2 Miles or 8.4 Miles*
March 31st, 2018 @ 9AM!
Trail running has always been in our USOLE DNA! We were the first running store in Chicago to bring trail racing to the Chicago running community. These trail races are great courses for folks wanting to get off the roads and enjoy some of our beautiful trails, but not have to be an expert trail runner to get to the finish. Our trail races are very laid back and great fun for the entire family, making it fun & easy for all! The USOLE Trail Challenge is great for people of all ages and all abilities looking to change up the running routine and get “off” the roads!
The Katie Flynn 8.4 Mile Loop:
We are honored to stand with one our long time Team USOLE'rs, Ryan Flynn as we remember his sister Katie Flynn! Katie was an avid runner and enjoyed running in numerous races in her life from the marathon to the trail ultra-marathon! Her family wanted to remember and celebrate her and what better way to celebrate Katie's life than to name the inaugural 8.4 mile loop after her! We are proud to stand with the Flynn Family in celebrating Katie's life and know she would have enjoyed running this inaugural distance named after her in Wolf Road Woods! We invite everyone to come out, enjoy the trails and enjoy the celebration of Katie Flynn!
Trail Race Location:
March 31st, 2018 - We will be headed back to Wolf Road Woods, part of the Palos Trail System to tackle our very popular 4.2 mile course! This course will have a great mix of double & single track along with undulating terrain in the beautiful Wolf Road Woods! It may have a small hill or two to climb as well, but fun will always be had! You will do the 4.2 mile course twice if you so choose and then have the glory of having run 8.4 miles on the beautiful trails of the Forest Preserves! USOLE Trail Challenge races are a great way to see the trails, get your long run and enjoy camaraderie with your trail running friends!
