      I won't list them individually, but there is a new group putting on trail races (yay!) In the chicago area. They can be found at www.muddymonk.com. They have their entire 2013 schedule posted. I did the second race they have put on yesterday, and while they had some problems (course was short, they did the unthinkable and ran out of beer), they sent out an email recognizing their problems and vowing that they will be fixed.

          Are you a member of New Leaf Ultra Runs? I just joined a few months ago (recent transplant to the area), but several NLUR peeps did the 1st and 2nd races in the Muddy Munk series. I've seen you posting on the trail user group, so you should check them out.

           

          I just checked out the Muddy Monk website - I guess they don't know what "fanny" means overseas. Frozen Fanny is not a great name for a 5k, LOL.

            April 20 The Race That's Good For Life 5k- Oak Park

             

            Thanks I added them.  I just started with Half marathons and Marathons.  I will add whatever others provide.  So many 5k's/10k's that I would typing all day otherwise Smile

              Badger, you should never listen to me. I am an idiot. (Sorry.) The Race That's Good For Life is the 28th. My two cents...the best 5k in the area (not that I have done them all). They have separate men's and women's races. It is fun to get to watch the fasties of the other sex race. Plus you get to run past a half dozen Frank Lloyd Wright homes.

              Roxie, I know many New Leaf members going back to their CHUG days. I just haven't had the urge to join, plus they seem to do everything on facebook, and there is no way in hell that I'm joining that time wasting mess (this place is enough of a time-suck).

                Nice- my local racing season starts with the F3 Half. 

                 

                Anybody know of any one mile races in the city this year? I'm hoping to get under 6 minutes for once, but haven't seen anything since the one at Navy Pier in 2011.

                     Thanks! If I didn't have plans that weekend, I'd definitely check it out. I'll have to see if the summer meets can fit in my schedule when the time comes.

                      Yes, that's a great 5k.  The FLW Races in October are just as good (same location but course goes west), plus there's an unofficial double, i.e. run the 5k then the 10k, which starts 45mins later.. 

                       

                      A few others for the list:

                       

                      Ravenswood 5k:  late April (Chicago)

                      Soldier Field 10: May 25th (Chicago)

                      Race Against Hate 5k/10k: June 16th (Evanston)

                      Frank Lloyd Wright Races:  Oct xx (Oak Park)

                      "Only a few more laps to go and then the action will begin, unless this is the action, which it is."

                        Added to the list.  I was looking for the date of the solider field race.  This will turn into a nice list.  I had to go to 7 websites to get all this information.

                          Thanks for putting this list together! Can you add Frozen Gnome 50k on January 13th in Crystal Lake? It's my next race. Maybe I can recruit somebody else to sign up. Big grin


                          A Sweetheart

                            Great news! I found out about a race that I didn't see on any calendars. The Daniel Burnham Open is a 4k XC race that will take place at Montrose Harbor on Jan 20 best part...it is FREE! Fun, fun, fun. (BTW, big thanks, Badger).
