WELCOME TO THE USOLE VIRTUAL TRAIL CHALLENGE...Due to COVID-19 and the recent Governor's orders, we will be taking the upcoming USOLE Trail Challenge, Virtual, for our Spring (Now Summer) Trail Challenge. We invite everyone to go our find their favorite off road trail and hit the trails. Please be sure you have some sort of GPS measuring so you can measure your route/time/distance. Trail running is what we are known for. We are bummed to not be able to get together and race on the trails, but we invite you to hit the trails anyway, enjoy the outdoors (social distancing from others), get dirty and get "off the roads!" We then want to see a post trail run celebration pic as well! We know that these are unprecedented times and while we hoped to be together, we must be safe and be socially distant. This area has tons of great trails and you can go hit the trails we love such as Wolf Road Woods/Palos/Bull Frog Lake, the Chicagoland area has great off-road trails all over! We want to see what you run! Please sign up and have your run submitted to us by June 30th. All participants will receive a USOLE Trail Challenge Summer Tech T and pretty cool custom USOLE Trail Challenge Church Key Bottle Opener! We will also be raising funds for CAMBr, The Chicago Area Mountain Bikers who maintain many of the trails in the Palos Trail Systems (and many other trails across the many forest preserves) that we run on!
