Run for the Riverfront

Mooseheart, IL

The original Mooseheart run. Our course goes through the beautiful Mooseheart campus and out around their scenic lake. Our beloved bald eagles have relocated their nest this year, so instead of running underneath their home while on the course, you’ll find them near the fieldhouse parking lot, watching over the starting line.
