St. Mary’s School is proud to host the 1st annual Russell Hustle 5K Trail Run and 2K kids run/adult walk at Russell Woods this Saturday, April 14th. The 5K Trail Run begins at 9AM and the 2K kids run/adult walk kicks off at 10AM. Registration available now here.
Come be part of DeKalb County’s First Trail Run in its premier Forest Preserve. Run winding through native growth timber on wide trails and single track as well as on prairie trail along the Kishwaukee River. Some trails are rustic and with steep inclines to test your mettle. And based on the forecast at this point, be prepared as there maybe some mud! They will run, rain or shine. The 2K Run/Walk also travels through the woods on the main lane; flat and even, but still beautiful. There will be a water stop at the half way point of both races and at the end.
