Some people run because the act of running is fun for them. Others run as part of their fitness routine, but consider it a necessary evil. Why can’t running be fun and healthy? It can!  This May, in Oswego, the Oswegoland Park District combines fun and run with the Terror Trail Run at Saw Wee Kee on Saturday, May 14 starting at 4:30pm. Here are the details!

Race Date and Time: Saturday, May 14, 2011 from 5:00-8:00pm

The run is a  four mile run through trails you just don’t often see in Illinois. Halfway through this race you won’t know what country you are in or what year it is! You will just know you have to keep running. This race is not for children, the squeamish, or those who imagine people grabbing their feet when they climb the stairs.

Cost: $35 for the run. Cost includes post race eats and a drink after the event and a clean pair of pants.

Check in Location:

Scoreboards, 1100 S Douglas Road, Oswego by 4:30pm on race day.

The race course begins at Saw Wee Kee Park where there is  no parking at the park so don’t head there! Let the buses take you. You must load onto the buses between 4:30-5:15pm or you miss the race.

The course winds through fields and ravines. There will be mud, strange sounds and even heavy breathing (but not from the run!)

Post Terror Wrap Up Party

After the run there will be a party with awards given to overall first place male and female by age group. The party will have treats, soft drinks and beers (for those with appropriate ID’s). at Scoreboards.
