The race venue is at The Forge: Lemont Quarries, an outdoor adventure park in Lemont, Illinois. The course runs through the Park and the adjoining trails of the Heritage Quarries Recreation Area and I&M Trails, located adjacent to historic downtown Lemont.  Athletes and spectators will enjoy views of the Park’s exhilarating attractions and natural ecosystem, which includes the historic I&M Canal and multiple quarry lakes.
