Turtle Ten Miler

The 2015 Turtle Ten

Once again – runners from all around the Midwest are forcing us to have FUN!

Yes – once again – you can run the Un-Race, aka the PFRPC Turtle Ten Miler!

Join the Park Forest Running and Pancake Club (PFRPC) for the SIXTH Un-Running of the Turtle 10.

The race will be run and timed on our certified 10 mile course.

Pancakes and other food stuffs will be served at the finish.

Awards to all Finishers Until We Run Out 

Labor Day – September 7, 2015 – Start Time 8am
At Hickory Creek Junction Preserve – Three Miles West of Route 45 (LaGrange Rd.) on Route 30 in Mokena, IL

COST: Current PFRPC Members – FREE!

Anyone Joining the PFRPC on Race Day – FREE!

All Others – $10!

Again This Year – We will take credit cards (and checks and cash)

For an additional $15, you will receive a PFRPC Cool-Max Singlet, beautifully decorated front and back with the club logo and motto. Wear this shirt at any race and you will be the envy of all other runners, spectators and hangers-on! Plus hats, bags and other stuff artfully decorated with the club logo.

Sizes are limited so come to the race early!

Questions call Un-Race Director Joe at: 815.937.3773 or email [email protected]

Race Day Sign-Up Only

*As you might infer from the information above, we are tired of high race fees caused by having timing chips, giving out overpriced shirts, online computer registration and other foo-foo, falderal and all that jazz. Plus, we like a surprise just as much as the next person. Will three people show up? Thirty three? Three hundred??? Who knows?!

Join Us at the Un-Race! You’ll have an UN-Believably Good Time!

September Moon Run

September 7, 2013 in calendar, Moon Runs, News by Liz Vander Velde

Thursday September 19

6:30 p.m Old Plank Trail, Frankfort. Briedert Green Access.

Saturday runs have moved

September 4, 2013 in calendar, News, Training by Liz Vander Velde

Its time to change venue again. Effective now, we start at Midlothian Reservoir – 167th and Cicero at 7 am until the autumnal fall back time change. Then we start at 8 am.

Saturday Runs Change to Frankfort starting June 1 for the summer

May 29, 2013 in calendar, News, Training by Liz Vander Velde

Frankfort runs begin at the parking lot on White St and the park that contains The Grainery. You can see it from Lagrange. We start at 7 am unless you have some long mileage to do. Please run with friends if at all possible. This trail is heavily used so there will always be a variety of footed, wheeled and otherwise motating occupants vying for space. Practice random acts of kindness y’all.

Rich Kaz will be putting water out at Schoolhouse but always carry anyway.
