Runners of all ages and abilities will be heading to Natural Lands’ ChesLen Preserve in Coatesville to race through beautiful — and rugged — terrain at the ChesLen Chase for Open Space on Saturday, Oct. 19.
Proceeds from the 10K, 5K, and two-mile trail race benefit Natural Lands’ efforts to save open space, care for nature, and connect people to the outdoors.
“ChesLen Chase is a blast!” said Kelly Ann Baker, who participated in a previous ChesLen Chase. “I am a seasoned trail runner and was very impressed by the challenging course. The trail was very well-marked, and you can’t beat the after-party. This is a great race to run if you are training or just want to have fun.”
Runners can choose from the three distances, all of which traverse the 1,282-acre ChesLen Preserve’s scenic landscapes.
The fun continues after crossing the finish line with a post-race party featuring live music, craft beer, food, family activities, and an awards ceremony.
