Welcome to year 10 of the DPR Trail Half-Marathon, Marathon and 50 Mile Ultra Marathon along the beautiful and fast Des Plaines River Trail in Lake County, Illinois. This is a truly special running course. The DPR Trail is a wide, crushed gravel track, free of roots and rocks, and very flat. All of the major road crossings are managed by way of bridges or viaducts (with only 4 minor road crossings along the whole 50 Mile course, 2 on the Marathon course, and none for the Half-Marathon course). This is a great track through alternating lush forests and open wetlands. With cool temperatures expected, and given the flat terrain and ideal running surface, you'll find these to be extremely fast courses. Come out and join us for a great run!

- This will be my first half marathon and I'm not sure I will be able to run all of it. So I might be walking and I'm wondering is there a time limit? I believe I should be able to do a half marathon in about 3 1/2 hours. and will there still be support on the course. I haven't signed up yet because most races have time limits and I don't want to be alone if there is no support. Thank you MarcyHi there. For the Half marathon there is no cut-off time. There are also 5 aid stations over the course of the Half Marathon route!! :)
