Tortured Soles trail running series brought to you by RunWell, your favorite local running store, is kicking off on Sunday, November 12th at 9:30am at Willoughby Farms in Collinsville! We are having a BIG OL' KICKOFF BASH! BBQ, short trail running film, demo shoes, and TRAILS TO EXPLORE!
This is a grassroots trail running series! Whether you are brand new to trail running, or a seasoned trail running veteran, you will enjoy this series! The runs are not timed. You can go as far as you want, but we ask that you run or walk at least 4 miles to earn a raffle ticket into the drawing. Each raffle ticket earns you a chance to WIN cool prizes from RunWell! Those who attend all 5 trail runs and complete 4 miles (or more) at each run, will earn a 2017 Tortured Soles finishers plaque! Bring the whole family! The kids will have a blast earning their plaque!
Cost is $25 for the series and includes your performance shirt. Receive one raffle entry per 4 mile run completed in the series! Each raffle ticket earned is a chance to WIN cool prizes from RunWell, including FREE trail running shoes that will be raffled off at the last Tortured Soles event.
NOTE: These are self supported trail runs. Carry your own water/food. Bring community food to share for post run. Run at your own risk.
NOTE 2: **CUP FREE - In an effort to reduce and reuse and protect the natural places that we love, this Series is CUP FREE! Please bring a vessel to drink from, or you can purchase a collapsible, reusable UlraSpire cup for $5 at the Event that can be used for the whole Series.
All paces welcome. Can't run every trail run in the series? That's ok! Attend the ones that you can! Receive a raffle ticket for each one that you attend and complete 4 miles. More entries, more chances to WIN!
Demo shoes available at the kick off and we will raffle off a FREE pair of trail running shoes at the end of the series!
