The Big Day:
Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013
1-Mile Dash: 4 p.m.
5K: 4:30 p.m.
College of DuPage Football Stadium (corner of Park Boulevard and College Road)
425 Fawell Blvd., Glen Ellyn, IL
- New course in 2013! Description and map coming soon.
Race packets will include t-shirt and assigned bib and chip! Early packet pick-up will be available again this year.
Each participant will be given a free long-sleeved technical shirt again. There is an option to purchase additional shirts for $12 during online registration. For your convenience, shirts will be included in the pre-race day packet pick-up. Please note that race-day registrants cannot be guaranteed a t-shirt.
Technical shirts are intended to fit close to the body for moisture management. If you prefer loose-fitting clothing or will be wearing another shirt underneath, consider ordering a larger size.
Ample free parking will be available in Fawell Blvd lots B, C, and D. There will be plenty of volunteers and clear signage to direct you to the football stadium, where pre-race activities will take place.
We are happy to say that the 2013 race will again utilize a Jaguar technology timing system, which is the most modern and accurate method available. You can expect:
- Disposable bibs and chips available at the time of pre-race day packet pick-up.
- Immediate and real-time results posted on flat screen TVs, text messaged to runners
(if the runner chooses), and posted on the Internet at www.onestoprace.com
Aid Stations and Comfort Facilities:
There will be an aid station, water stops and restrooms along the course to ensure happy and safe participants.
