Allerton Park Trail Run 2012

 Registration is closed for this event
Take on a challenging trail race through fall-colored forests and past the unique gardens and statuary of Allerton Park. This is a trail race, which means that runners may find hidden roots, ruts, sharp turns, and other obstacles. The race course follows the river and may contain some slippery areas and mud could be present, depending on the weather on the dates surrounding the race. Please take care while running.
Location Allerton Park near Monticello, IL.  25 miles west of Champaign, IL
