- 6 miles/10K, 50K
- Trail Race
It was super cold (single digits Farenheit) in 2018, but the volunteers and RDs were so happy - it was a pleasure to race. Also Veteran Acres is really pretty despite being a bit of a haul from Chicago-proper. Turns out Veteran Acres is also kind of hilly - the Midwestern kind of hilly where you shred your flat-land trained legs by short, steep up and downhills. There are plenty of nice amenities like a warming tent, plenty of aid station goodies, and a nice hoody with a gnome head on it.
