Merrell Down & Dirty 10K Obstacle Race
Start: Sunday, May 19, 2013
Gilberts , IL 60136
Mile 1 The first mile of the race is flat and fast. Runners will race up the ramp of the large barn and out the back side and then carry on through a large field and across a bridge over the 91 Highway before turning down a dirt trail and heading deep into the farm. Mile 2 10Ker's will continue on with rolling hills before they split from the 5K course just past the first farm house. Mile 3 The course follows the perimeter of the Hay fields. This is a good time to kick in the after burners and make up some distance. Mile 4 After running through a small stream racers will continue through the Hay fields before coming upon a second farm house and pond. Mile 5 The 10K course meets up with the 5K course just in time to explore all that the farm has to offer, looping around ponds, past barns and farm houses and through a hose pasture. Mile 6 Runners head back down the flat dirt path, over the bridge, down Powers Road and into the main event field where it is time to get MUDDY!
