Location of Start / Finish Area & Parking
Location: Marlowe Middle School, 9625 Haligus Road, Lake in the Hills, IL 60156. The Run/Walk and Kids Dash will begin on the back (West) side of the building. However, all participants will park in the lot by the front entrance of Marlowe (the East side of the building) and walk through the building to the gym for pre-race stretching and refreshments. Then, runners will exit on the West side of the building to begin the race. If you pick up your packet on race day or register on race day, please allow enough time to return your items to your vehicle, as there is no gear check, before returning to the start line to begin the race. Volunteers will be on-site directing parking.
See the revised race course below and here! Water will be available at approximately the 1.6 mile mark.
Timing, Age Groups, & Awards
Race Time will be on hand to provide finish times to all runners and walkers participating in the 5K!! The 5K is chip timed, but it is a gun start style race, meaning that everyone's time starts when the race begins, not when you cross the start line. Please note results are not official until after the event. Medals will be given to the male and female top 3 in each age division (14 and under, 15-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65 and older) and the overall male and female finishers. Male and female overall winners will receive a Running Depot $50 Gift Card, a Tom's Farm Market pumpkin pie, a Tropical Smoothie Cafe smoothie card, and a medal! Age group winners will receive a Tropical Smoothie Cafe smoothie card and a medal!
