COURSE INFORMATION

The course will travel north along Grant Park Drive.  Runners will turn around just before Lake Drive and head south.  The course will go past the club house and then turn left into the Grant Park Beach parking lot for the finish.

 

Participants will go through the parking lot and run across the beach toward Lake Michigan.  The finish line will be only a few feet before the lake. Those who wish to avoid the lake will have room to stop.

 

The last half mile of the course is downhill.  The hill to the beach parking lot is very steep.  Also note that all participants will have to go off the pavement when running on the beach. This will just be for a short distance but it will be somewhat rugged terrain.
