The Trails Challenge

The RTPD Trails Challenge Youth OCR is approximately a 1.25 Mile (2K) Race. The course will take adventurous youth throughout the Woodland Trails Park. There will be between 12-16 natural and man-made obstacles throughout the course challenging their determination and physical prowess. The races are held completely within the Woodland Trails Park footprint so there are no street crossings. All participants will receive a t-shirt, medal, goodie bag and bragging rights they conquered the trail. The race will be held rain or shine, maybe delayed due to lightning or thunder. Please check back to this page and or on race day call 847-255-2229 for updates.
