Choose Your Own Nonsense – Trail Running Chicago

April 3 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

Trail Running Chicago

In the spirit of the books that we all loved as children, Operation Footloose and Fancy Free will be designed to allow for the unknown. If  you’re looking for trail running Chicago, this is the race for you. This race is built for both the brand new trail runner and the seasoned trail runner. This race will have multiple distances available to complete. You won’t know what distance you’re running until you’re done.

Along the course, there will be choices for you to make. Choose one direction and examine the remains of a UFO crash. Choose the other and end up captured by aliens. Your choices on the course will determine how far you run. Operation Footloose and Fancy Free is meant to drop you into an unknown planet full of perils and delights at every turn. Will you get abducted in the woods? Quite possibly. Will you have a good story to tell? Most definitely.

The race will start and end at Wolf Gate Woods in the Palos Trails. Every runner will have to choose their code name before starting.

Join the Curious Ultrarunner’s Secret Society for a fun day in the woods.

Curious Ultrarunner’s Secret Society was established to inject a sense of whimsy into training calendars, split times, and fartleks. Our goal is to build a community that creates a space for the individual to fall in love with the magic of running.

Mission: To help others fall in love with ultrarunning.

Vision: To make you & the world slightly better through laughter & pain.

Be sure to join the Facebook Group and join the CUSS Challenges.
