Des Plaines River Trail RacesPosted on Oct 19, 2019 by
October 12, 2019 - Des Plaines River Trail - Vernon Hills
Welcome to year 10 of the DPR Trail Half-Marathon, Marathon and 50 Mile Ultra Marathon along the beautiful and fast Des Plaines River Trail in Lake County, Illinois. This is a truly special running course. The DPR Trail is a wide, crushed gravel track, free of roots and rocks, and very flat. The Marathon IS a BOSTON QUALIFIER! This is a great track through alternating lush forests and open wetlands. With cool temperatures expected, and given the flat terrain and ideal running surface, you'll find these to be extremely fast courses. Register soon, always sells out.
