MURPHYSBORO, IL (KFVS) -

If you plan on running the Little Big Challenge this year, you better be training.  

The four mile run around Lake Murphysboro promises to be a challenge to runners who will face one of the hilliest terrains in southern Illinois.  

The run is scheduled for Saturday, October 17.  

It begins and ends at the Lake Murphysboro IDNR office off of Route 149, about two miles west of Murphysboro's city limits.  

The event raises money for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization that helps at risk children in Franklin, Jackson, Perry, Union, and Williamson counties.

There are more than 100 kids in the program now.

Register online here or at the race site at 8 am on Saturday.  

The cost is $25 for those 15 and older.
