The Original WFG Xtreme 10

Sat July 14, 2018 Directions



940 S Frontage Rd, Woodridge, IL


Trails, Hills, Guts and Chuck's!

10 miles of pure bliss!   Saturday, July 14th, gun goes off at 7:30am.    

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Since 2004 we have held the race at the Argonne Family Park on Cass.  Argonne National Laboratory is unable to share the Family Picnic area this year.  New this year we will be starting and finishing on 940 South Frontage Rd on the east side of Lemont Road.   It lends for a fast start/finish where your family and friends can cheer you in to the finish!  We will have plenty of parking in the lots off S Frontage Rd near the Lemont Rd freeway exit.

All runners will receive an awesome tech tank (gender specific cut), rustic finishers medal, BBQ breakfast, a high five from John as you cross the finish line, and a morning of incredible trail racing! 

Enjoy a well earned breakfast provided by the one and only Chuck's BBQ! Yes, he does breakfast as well as he does BBQ! Runners prepare yourself for a treat!

There is plenty of parking in the lot off S Frontage Rd. (940 S Frontage Rd)  The best way to get to the start/finish line and parking lot is to take the Cass Ave exit from Hwy 55, head south to Frontage Rd and go west. Two miles down Frontage Rd you will be greeted by the Xtreme Parking Boss!  He will direct you to the parking lot.

Proceeds from this one of a kind trail race will support a one of a kind charity, Big Rig Books!  John Gervase, in his spare time, while driving his Big Rig visits underserved schools delivering books to school age children.  He touches children's lives everyday one book at a time!

The PR Mile and new this year The Beer Mile!

Saturday, August 4th First gun goes off at 6:20pm

Well spank my ass and call me Sally!  By overwhelming demand, we have added a new wave, THE BEER MILE!!!

The last wave, after the elites have put us all to shame, is when race night gets out of control-well not too out of control. After all, we are civilized runners that have the highest standards and are models for our communities.  Requirements to sign up:  You must be at least 21 with proof of age; you must have a designated driver or pass a breath test (please don’t eat garlic before the test); and if you must, and you will, reverse ingestion (hurl) you must do so in a manner that is out of the race director’s view.  Rules for the BEER MILE will be announced prior to the start.  

Use code FASTMILE to save 10% on the PR Race!
