This area is hilly and forested, making for fun orienteering. We will be starting at the regular spot off Flavin/ Willow Springs Rd. The courses will be normal white, yellow, orange, green, and red.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Public Transportation:
The #379 Pace bus leaves Midway Airport at 10:45 am. Get off at 87th street and 88th ave. Walk west about 2 miles on 87th and through the forest preserve to the start. 87th ends before Laving Road, so you'll have to take trails to the start location. This will be a good navigation exercise for you.

From the city, take I-55 (Stevenson Expressway) 13 miles southwest of the loop. Exit at LaGrange Road (aka US 45, Exit 279A), and go south 1.7 miles to Archer Ave. Take Archer Avenue southwest (right) for 1.6 miles and turn south (left) on Flavin Rd. (This is across the street from Willow Springs Rd, also shown as Gilbert Rd or 104th Ave) Go up the hill and take a left into the first forest preserve entrance. Watch for red and white orienteering signs to direct you to the registration area.
