Starter: Pete Struck

 

Course: It is the same course as last year.  It is very simple and it is 3 x 1 mile loops.  The course map is attached and the course will be lined the whole way. 

 

Finish Line:

At the finish line we collect tags from each runner.  The tag has their name and school on it.  This is the same method we used last year and the same method we use for our conference meets.  I have attached the tags for each team, please make these on cardstock and we would suggest that you laminate them.  It helps keep the tags in good shape after a sweaty 3 miles of racing. 

 

Parking:

Parking is limited in the forest preserve lot. 

Parking for Buses: Please have your bus driver drop your team off and then have them park in one of two places:  1) park in the parking lot by the movie theater/office parking lot just north of Hobson rd. and west of Rt. 53 or 2) the parking lot at the closed Dominick's parking lot on 63rd at I-355. 

Parking for Spectators: Once the lot is full at the Forest Preserve parents and spectators can park in the neighborhood north of the park or in the parking lot on the northeast corner of Hobson Rd. and Double Eagle Dr..  Both places would require a short walk over to the Forest Preserve.
