The trail run or walk we fondly call “Allerton” is held on the estate of Robert Allerton Park in Monticello, IL. It is always the last Sunday in October.
The time of year at Allerton is beautiful as the trail is through fall-colored forests and past the unique gardens and statuary of Allerton Park. It is a trail race, which means that runners may find hidden roots, ruts, sharp turns, and other obstacles.
The race ends in the meadow. Family and friends gather while a local radio station provides music. We have a post run brunch that is largely supported by our race participants & sponsors.
