McNaughton Park Trail Runs … update


Dear McNaughton Park Trail Runners (and last minute race appliers):


The 2008 edition of the McNaughton Park Trail Runs is only 25 days 

away. We are currently at 188 runners, with 81 entered in the 50 

miler, 55 in the 100, and 52 in the 150 miler.


The “Trail Conditions by Courage” blog has both McNaughton Park trail 

conditions posted by “Trailrunner Courage”, an AKC registered Collie 

(and her people), and news of interest to McNaughton runners and/or 

runners contemplating signing up for the race on April 11-13, 2008 in 

Pekin, IL. CHECK OUT THE CAMPING/PARKING MAP just put up this morning.


You can access the blog one of three ways:


1) By going to our website at 

and clicking on the photo of “Courage”

2) From within the website by using the pull down menu: Trail 


3) By going directly to:


If you’re signed up for the race, check back from time to time to see 

the conditions of the trail leading up to the race. Marvin, his wife, 

and Courage head to the park regularly for weekend walks with their  

digital camera. We’ll post pictures and descriptions of the trail. 

We’ve already got a start while we were practicing.
