​Tortured Soles is a grassroots trail running series.  We ask everyone to run or walk at least 4 miles at each event. 

The Series includes 5 different trails:  Registered participants will receive an email for each run and have 2 weeks to complete the trail run on their own or in small groups.  Everyone should plan to attend the final run, Greenrock Trail, on January 10th for an end of Series run and party!  





- GREENROCK TRAIL - Pavilion rented and food trucks available.  This will be our finale and party.  There is no set start time, but the food trucks will be available from 11:00am - 1:00pm, so plan to finish in this time frame.  No potluck food will be permitted.  Bring your own beverages. ​​


This is the Midwest!  The weather is unpredictable!  We run in rain and snow.  No refunds will be given due to inclement weather. 

Tortured Soles trail running series brought to you by RunWell, your favorite local running store, is kicking off   November 15th!


  • Our party will be at the END OF THE SERIES on January 10th!  There will be no potluck food, but instead we will have food trucks available!  As you come off the trail, you will receive your custom printed finishers plaque (provided you completed 4 miles at each of the 5 trails).  Grab some food from the food trucks and head out! 
  • Participants will have 2 weeks to complete each trail.  For the safety of the participants and volunteers, we will not congregate in large groups as we've done in the past, due to the current social distancing guidelines.  Run together in small groups, take a selfie at the trail head sign and post it in the Tortured Soles event page for that trail.  If you want credit for that trail, each participant should post the picture (the burden is not on us to identify everyone in the photos.  This has been an issue in the past).
  • Please wear a mask if you are not able to keep a physical distance of 6 feet from others.
  • Due to the increase in cost of insurance and food trucks, the price of the event had to increase.  We hope you understand.
