Make Trails Fun

See all of our events →

Helping get people outdoors on Illinois' beautiful trails is reward in itself.

But it's also a super important part of our mission to help people connect to trails and the benefits they provide. So we take on events that do three things:

  • Showcase Ilinois trails and the destinations they connect
  • Benefit the communities it visits
  • Show people how much fun trails can be, maybe in ways they haven't used them before
  • Pay for themselves—and truthfully, they should go a little further than that and support our work

We're proud to offer our three events—The Hennepin Hundred ultra marathon, GITy Up! overnight bike camping ride, and Bike & Dine, Lockport!—and are excited to be planning more.
