Run to the Library

May 28, 2022, 9:00 am to 1:30 pm

Join us for an I Spy Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, May 28 9am-1:30pm!  We'll walk from the Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve to the Mahomet Public Library!

Six stops with special displays! Kids who collect stickers from the red buckets at all 6 stops will get a free book at the end! Grownups will get a free coupon for our Keurig station. 

An I Spy hunt all along the route, with plenty of items, some big and some small, to find! This year's walk will feature dinosaurs, gnomes, and stars, plus many unique items. We'll give you a scoresheet to keep track of what you find.

We'll step off at the playground near the bell tower at Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve and we'll follow the bike path to the library. At the end of the trail, you'll find the library's Summer Kickoff event with inflatables, carnival games, music, and food! (You can attend the Summer Kickoff even if you don't sign up for the Run/Walk.)

We encourage people to park at the library and take the provided shuttle to the starting line. 


The I Spy Fun Run/Walk is now FREE. We are refunding fees to those who registered when there was still a fee and we will honor their shirt size requests. 

Registration for T-shirts is now closed, but anyone can participate! Just stop by the Fun Run/Walk registration table on Saturday, May 28!

The Course

  • It's a 2-mile route following the bike path the entire way, and stroller friendly!

  • All hidden items will be located close to the trail in grassy areas. You will not need to venture into the woods or nearby yards. 

  • The bike path runs close to Lake of the Woods Road for a while. Please make sure you have enough adults in your party to supervise young children for these stretches along the road. The route also crosses a few intersections. 

  • We are offering free shuttle service 9am-1:30pm from the library to the start of the walk.
