The USOLE April Trail Challenge - 4.5 Miles
April 10th, 2021 @ 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!
Trail Race Location:
We will be headed back to the Far Northside of Chicago and Schiller Woods! This is the original USOLE Trail Challenge 5 mile course and original location (over 20 years at Schiller woods)! This is a great location very close to the City, North & West Suburbs for all folks to easily travel to and take part in. Schiller Woods has a vast trail system that takes folks along the beautiful, scenic and legendary Des Plaines River Trail.
*We will be having a packet pickup with our retail partners:
April 8th - Bitter Pops Bottle Shop - 3pm - 9pm
April 9th - Heart Break Hill Running Company - 1pm - 7pm
*Packet pick-up will also be available on race morning starting @ 8:00am from the USOLE Tents.
Post Race - Brews & Fun!
Once the races are over, we will have Solemn Oath craft brews along with Athletic Brewing non-alcoholic brews for everyone! City Water Hard Seltzer will also be on hand to help hydrate folks after the run. We will have some other goodies for folks as well to enjoy, but let's run, have some fun and enjoy some fine craft brew styles from our USOLE Trail Challenge sponsor! We will also have a killer raffle for all runners with some really cool prizes from all of our sponsors. Come for the (trail) run, stay for the fun (socially distant and safe of course).
Volunteer Information: Please email Universal Sole (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us know if you would like to take part by volunteering.
