Come one, come all, let the Trail Festival begin! Fat Fish Racing, our local mountain biking club, has invited the Windy City Striders to join in the trail festival festivities by hosting a trail on the same day and on the same course as the mountain bike race that they are sponsoring for the youth mountain biking team.
Join us for a 4.25 mile course loop that will later be ridden by our fellow mountain bikers. The course is a loop that will be primarily on dirt. The biking festivities will kick off at 10:00am so plan to stick around to cheer on the young ones or better yet, bring your bike and sign up for the bike race also! And, we aren’t kidding about that…there will be a “Lunker” category for all individuals interested in participating in both the run and the ride. Titles will be given to the top three male and three female athletes who clock the lowest combined running/biking time.
The proceeds from the race will go to support both the Striders and the youth mountain biking team.

We look forward to seeing you there!
