We have two sprint courses to offer for this event. Runners can participate in one or both as you wish.

Each of the courses will be about 5km with estimated winning times around 25 minutes. WE WILL BE USING E-PUNCH for a few key controls to keep everyone "on-course". PLEASE BRING YOUR E-PUNCH if you have one. If you don't, we'll have the usual loaners.

Note that we have the start and finish in the SE corner of the Diversey Driving Range Parking Lot which is city coordinated pay parking lot at $4.00 for one hour and $8.00 for 1-4 hours.

There is street parking around in the area – but watch for the signs so you do not have to pay “extra”…

From the parking lot down to the no admission Lincoln Park Zoo is less than half a mile if someone is interested to partake.

After the event – we will potentially stop at one of the micro-breweries in the area for a bite.

Please register on-line by 5/10/17 to save money and get a pre-printed map!

Coming from north on I94 – depending on traffic, take exit 41B for East Peterson to Lake Shore Drive. Take Lake Shore Drive south and exit on the Belmont Ave exit. Continue on North Lake Shore Drive south until you will have the Diversey Driving Range Parking Lot to the east.

Another option would be to take Fullerton east from the highway (exit 47A) all the way to N Cannon Drive north. Go through the park and turn right on N Lake Shore Drive. The Diversey Range Parking Lot is to the east.

Coming from the city on Lake Shore Drive North, turn off at Fullerton and head west. Take a right turn on N Cannon Drive (north), go through the park and turn right on Lake Shore Drive. The Diversey Range Parking Lot is to the east.

If you have any type of navigation software – enter Diversey Driving Range and let the traffic estimator decide what is best based on the traffic.
