The ‘leg breaker’ finish of the West Dundee River Challenge returns for a fifth year!
With a population of 7,331, West Dundee has managed to keep its quaintness and small-town feeling intact. Designated historical sites fill the downtown and surrounding residential neighborhood. Restored buildings include structures reported to have provided refuge for slaves on the Underground Railroad. As part of the upper Fox River Valley in northern Illinois, West Dundee enjoys one of the region’s most unique and treasured assets, the Fox River greenway. The Fox River serves as the Village’s eastern border and is quickly becoming one of the community’s finest recreational areas.
In addition to the days races, the West Dundee River Challenge offers fun activities for spectators and the community at large, all headquartered at Grafelman Park (4th & Washington):
>> Oversized lawn games will be available throughout the day to keep you (and the kids) entertained.
>> Dinner and drinks available from Emmett’s and Bleuroot from 1:00-8:00 pm.
>> Kids who come to the event with decorated helmets will be included in a contest for the best decorated helmets!
