Location of Start / Finish Area & Parking

Marlowe Middle School, 9625 Haligus Road, Lake in the Hills, IL 60156. 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 of Marlowe's building (East side of the building) and will walk around the building to enter on the West side (NOTE: the change from previous years where participants walked through the building). Please allow enough time to walk to the back of the building, pick up your packet, and walk back to the start line (if you pick up your packet on race morning or register on race day). Volunteers will be on-site directing parking.

Timing, Age Groups, & Awards

J3 Timing 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 Gift Card and a Tom's Farm Market pumpkin pie!
