Terra Sans Pave 8k / 4k - Blue Star
[header image: Terra Sans Pave]
Earthbound races in unpaved places!

Our second annual Terra Sans Pave trail runs took place Saturday, September 19th at Blue Star Memorial Woods forest preserve in Glenview, Illinois. 31 intrepid trail runners braved blustery conditions and toed the starting line... 15 raced our Big Lizard 10-mile, 10 raced eight kilometers, while six opted for our 1-lap tour of four kilometers.

9:00 am race time official weather statistics: 58F, partly cloudy, with negligible winds, 87% humidity. Persistent rain fell the day before and overnight, which rendered our racecourse saturated on race morning. Crushed gravel trail sections had "sometimes skirtable" puddles punctuated with many soft-mud spots, while our grassy parade loop was "quite splashy." Stuart Gootnick served as course marshal and Pete [local biker and trail runner] volunteered as lead biker escorting the field along their first lap.

Afterward... participants and volunteers gathered for refreshments and to share tales of their trail-running adventures. Runners, Mike Grabowski, Patti Downey, and Tom Kohler prepared and served an amazing pig roast with homemade beans and variety of sauces!
