Mayhem at Mill Creek scheduled
The Clark County (Ill.) Park District Trails Coalition is planning the 2nd Annual Mayhem at Mill Creek Extreme Trails Run for June 30.
The event is a 10K and will offer a new 1-mile Fun Mini Mayhem — for the less insane.

Protective eyewear is encouraged. Awards ceremony, refreshments and entertainment await runners at the finish line.
The 1-mile Mini Mayhem begins at 8:30 a.m. CDT. Mayhem begins at 9 a.m. by the soccer field at Mill Creek Park. Packet pick-up is from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. with a pre-race briefing just prior to start. Early bird registration is now through May 31.
