Mahomet is located at the intersection of I-74 and Hwy 47 about 10 miles west of Champaign. Registration and check-in will be on the west side of the high school (https://goo.gl/maps/PBfaYuUHqev).

Course

The course is a 5-mile trail run near an old buffalo trace or trail created by a massive herd of buffalo.  The 5-mile course will traverse rolling hills, small forests, open meadows and prairie.  This is a trail race. There could be hidden rocks and roots, sharp turns, and even water or mud. Lots of fun, but be careful.
