Tips - The number of the vehicles at the event is close to the capacity of the public lots, so plan a little extra time to find a spot. Once parked, the lots are a 5 to 10 minute walk from the event.
Road Closure - We start closing the roads on the course, which includes the road that runs in front of the school, at 8:00am. Please be aware that you will not be able to drop off anyone at the school after that time, nor will you be able to access the handicap parking or the parking to the rear of the school after that time.
Public Parking - The Village of Long Grove has two large municipal lots. There are also two small public lots behind the school. Additionally, there is some street parking, paticularly around the Archer lot.
Private Parking - The Long Grove Community Church grants us permission to use their lot. Several merchants have customer parking, though will not be open for business during the event, or will just be opening as the event is ending. If you park in a private location, please be a customer of that merchant on your way home.
Handicap Parking - We have a dedicated lot at Kildeer Countryside School. Because this parking is onsite, we must close it for safety reasons as we get ready to start the event, at 8:00am. If you plan to park here, please arrive well before 8:00am and be aware that you will not be able to leave until the run/walk portion of the event is over (approximately 10:00am). There are a few handicap spaces in the public lots.
Trophies and awards are given five deep in 5 year age increments, by gender, starting with a 14 and under category and ending with a 65 and over category. Additionally, all children receive participation ribbons. A link to race results will be posted on this site after the race - typically within 48 hours of race conclusion.
