@ THE FORGE: LEMONT QUARRIES
**A Brand New USOLE Trail Race with The Forge**
*Race Distance - 5 Mile Trail Loop*
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 - The Forge: Lemont Quarries:
We will be headed to a really unique place, the Forge: Lemont Quarries! A great location out in the Southwest Suburbs (close to our Palos Trail location), with unique trails and breathtaking scenery which are all part of a new outdoor adventure park called The Forge: Lemont Quarries. The planned running trail will be a flatter off road course with crushed limestone and some rocks & roots to run over. A nice blend of dirt and double track that will satisfy all levels of trail runners! Come out and run in our brand new USOLE Trail Challenge location, The Forge: Lemont Quarries! - Click to find out more!

**Race Morning Registration/Packet Pickup will be at the Forge starting @ 7:30am under the USOLE Tents! We encourage everyone to pick up packets at one of our three locations on January 8th, but will be available early on the 9th as well.**
Once the races are over, Will's Famous Chili and Odell Brewing craft brews along with Athletic Brewing non-alcoholic brews for everyone! We will have some other goodies for folks as well to enjoy, but let's run, have some fun and enjoy some of Will's Chili, Odell Brewing & Athletic Brewing Craft Beer! We are always in for a treat when Will crafts his family three meat chili for all to enjoy (and a fantastic vegetarian chili as well)! A great post race treat after hitting the trails! Will's Famous Chili along with some ice cold craft brews are not to be missed!
