Hennepin Hundred Ultra Marathon @ Hennepin Canal Parkway State Park  | Sheffield | Illinois | United States

Think of it: 100 miles of trail along the historic Hennepin Canal in the heart of Illinois for a flat and fast, point-to-point ultra-marathon! The inaugural race to be run along the Hennepin Canal in Northwest Illinois will travel through Whiteside, Bureau, and Henry counties. The 100-mile solo and 100-mile relay will begin in Sterling, Illinois, and end in Colona, Illinois, at Timbrook Field. The 50-mile ultra will begin in Sterling, Illinois, and end at Lock 22 outside of Mineral, Illinois. Camping is available at the 50-mile finish line, Lock 22. Transportation from the finish line to the start line for both races will be provided race morning.

The Hennepin Hundred & 50-mile race is a 2015 Trail Runner Magazine Trophy Series race.  It features 100 and 50 miles solo entries and a five-person relay team entry.  The surface is pressed rock, asphalt, and dirt. A 30-hour cutoff applies for the 100-mile race. The 50-mile race has a 13-hour time limit. There are aid stations every three to seven miles. Some aid stations will be manned with nutrition and drinks; others will be unmanned with water and sports drinks.  There will be plenty of places along the course for crews to see your runners. A belt buckle will be given to all 100 miles finishers. Sub 24 hour finishers will get a special belt buckle. 50-mile entrants and 100-mile relay entrants will receive a finisher medal.  An artist-made trophy will go to first overall male and female winners. The age group awards will be three deep, with 10-year age spans.

Oct 7 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Ryan's Round Barn Tour @ Johnson Sauk Trail State Recreation Area | Kewanee | Illinois | United States

Round the barn!

See history through an unmatched and rewarding experience. The barn is a recognizable symbol of Henry County’s rich agricultural heritage. Nestled on a knoll near the entrance of the 1,361-acre Johnson Sauk Trail State Park, The round barn was the brainstorm and pet project of a turn-of-the-century Chicago brain surgeon named Lawrence P. Ryan. The industrious doctor deviated from the standard square barn design that dotted the countryside and built a round barn. Ryan’s barn is a three-level, domed-ceiling structure built on a slope so that the first and second floors are easily accessible from the outside at ground level. Built by carpenters who specialized in round barn construction, it measures 80 feet tall and 85 feet in diameter. The barn features a 16-foot diameter floor-to-ceiling silo.

One of only 42 Illinois round barns in existence. Thanks to a dedicated group of concerned people, a unique piece of America’s agrarian past has been preserved for posterity. Ryan’s Round Barn is operated and maintained by The Friends of Johnson’s Park Foundation. Groups of ten or more, please call ahead to reserve your time.

This story of a disturbed young man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher takes place in southern Indiana in the early 1930s. When the boy was young he almost drowned; this trauma and the loss of his mother in the same accident has left him deathly afraid of water. The preacher, trying to break away from his family tradition of a long line of Kentucky preachers, works as a mechanic for the boy’s father.  The town lacks a preacher, and the women try to persuade him to preach while he tries to persuade the child to overcome his fear of water.
