We at FrogHops Sports are looking forward to hosting more marathons! This year, we have:

  • Arctic Frog Run - December 5, 2020

Bunny Wabbit Run | 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon

When: Saturday, April 11, 2020

Where: 16400 Buckley Road Libertyville, IL 60048​

(Detailed race information can be found on UltraSignup.com)

The Bunny Wabbit Run is a 5K (one hop), 10K (two hops), and half-marathon race, a 200-meter Kid’s Dash, and an Easter Egg Hunt all in one. This is open for children ages 8 and under.

Our scenic course features a few rolling hills that wind its way through the open prairies and lush green forests of the Des Plaines River and Casey Trails in the springtime. If you’re lucky (and fast enough), you might even catch the Easter Bunny with his prized Golden Egg. Catch him and get a FREE race entry next year!

What’s more, just by the race start at Independence Grove Forest Preserve is an awesome kid’s playground, a huge picnic area, and a man-made beach. So, come on out and bring the whole family for some fun this coming spring of 2020!

Arctic Frog Run | 15K, 25K, and 50K

When: Saturday, December 5, 2020

Where: Buckley Road Libertyville, IL 60048

Race Description

The Arctic Frog Endurance Run is a beginner’s ultramarathon. This scenic course features a trilogy of pavement, wooded and crushed limestone trails that run north and south of Des Plaines River and Northwest Casey Trails. Make NO mistake—it will NOT be a “gimme” with a few challenges in store (rolling hills)!

If you’re lucky, this northern Chicago suburbia turns into a winter wonderland come December each year, making it a unique running experience for anyone that hasn’t tried running in the cold winter months!
