Frozen Gnome 10K/50K Trail Race
There’s no race like Gnome! Come chill with the McHenry (County) Ultra Running Dudes and Dudettes, MUDD, on a fun and frosty run in Crystal Lake on Sunday, January 13th. The Frozen Gnome’s beautiful single-track course will take runners through the winter wonderland of Veteran Acres and Sterne’s Woods. Folks may choose either the 50K ultra run or the 10K race for speedsters. Gnome doubt about it, either course will be tough. There will be age group awards and surprises along the trail. Proceeds go to the Crystal Lake Park District. The Gnome Depot Aid Station will be heated and well stocked with warm drinks and hot soup. Visit ultrasignup.com to reserve a race bib today. Registration is limited to 150 total runners. It doesn’t take a Sherlock Gnomes to know this event will be exceptionally cool!
