Allerton Park Trail Run @ Allerton Park Trail Run | Monticello | Illinois | United States

This time of year on the estate of Robert Allerton Park in Monticello, IL is beautiful as the 5.7 mile trail winds through fall-colored forests and past the unique gardens and statuary of Allerton Park. This event is always the last Sunday in October, which obviously occasionally falls on Halloween. The race course follows the river, which has proven quite challenging over the years. Runners may find hidden roots, ruts, sharp turns, and other obstacles. The race ends in the meadow. 

Family and friends gather while a local radio station provides music. We have a post run brunch that is largely supported by the food items brought by YOU, the race participants and our sponsors. Post run awards ceremony with many age group awards and also many prize drawings.

In addition to paying the park for its use, we donate proceeds back. They are quite gracious for our support and ask how we would like our donations used. They have used our donation towards a railing at a dangerous spot, trail erosion control, recycle bins, water fountain bottle filling station, and more.

This event is the final event qualifier of the Monticello Triple Crown Awards. To qualify for the Monticello Triple Crown, you must complete a qualifying race in each of the other two Triple Crown Races (Allerton Trails Half Marathon &10K on April 6-7, and the Kirby Derby 5kM/10kM on May 12)…AND you must indicate Triple Crown Participant during the fall early registration sign up for the Allerton Park Trail Run. Email us with any questions. Cannot wait to see you run with us!
