Looks like this event has already taken place.

Sat, Mar 02 – Sun, Mar 03, 2024 • 10:00am

3795 Campton Hills Road, St. Charles, IL 60175

This race is back again at the 131 acre property with an extremely diverse landscape environment featuring restored woodlands, wetlands, prairie and savanna. A technical challenge, double track with a highest elevation of 876 feet. ​

Get ready to conquer the cold and embrace the thrill of the trails at the Fox Valley Winter Challenge Trail Series! On March 2nd, 2024, we kick off this exciting series with a heart-pounding 5k race at the Northwestern Medicine Cross Country Course in Geneva, IL. Then, on March 3rd, 2024, gear up for an even more challenging 10k race at the scenic Hickory Knolls in St. Charles, IL. Whether you're a seasoned trail enthusiast or a newcomer seeking a great time, this event is tailored to meet your winter trail running desires.

What makes this series truly special is the flexibility it offers – you can opt for one race or embrace the ultimate challenge by conquering both. These events will test your mettle on non-paved trails, taking you through the untamed beauty of nature's winter wonderland.

In its inaugural year under the new management, the Fox Valley Winter Challenge Trail Series promises an unforgettable experience. Every participant will receive a well-earned medal to commemorate their achievement and exclusive winter SWAG to keep you cozy all season long. But that's not all – those brave enough to sign up for the challenge will receive a special SWAG item and a medal for both races, making it an opportunity not to be missed. Join us as we usher in a new era of winter trail racing, celebrating the frosty trails and the enduring spirit of runners.
