The Valentine's Trail Challenge - 4.2 Miles (NEW COURSE)
**February 12th, 2022 @ 10am**
Now in it's 7th year, the USOLE Valentine's Trail Challenge is back @ Schiller Woods for 2022. A new course awaits everyone for 2022 and we are excited to get you all on it! Schiller Woods is a great location very close to the city with great trails and wooded scenery on the legendary Des Plaines River Trail (DPRT). The trail will be a flat off road course with nice wide trails the entire distance making it a great trail experience off the roads. This race is perfect for those wanting to try trail for the first time! Plan to join us February 12th, 2022 and find out the magic that is the USOLE Valentine's Trail Challenge.
POSSIBLE WEATHER ALERT! DUE TO POSSIBLE SNOWY CONDITIONS, SOME SECTIONS OF THIS COURSE ARE SNOW, MUD AND ICE COVERED! WE RECOMMEND ALL RUNNERS WEAR CROSS COUNTRY/TRACK SPIKES OR A PAIR OF YAKTRAX (SEE PIC) TO HELP THEM NAVIGATE AND GAIN TRACTION ON THE SNOW/ICE SECTIONS. YAKTRAX CAN BE WORN ON ANY RUNNING SHOE!
