The map is 1.5 square kilometers at a scale of 1:5000 (14x17) with 3 meter contour interval. Located near intersection of IL Route 31 and Huntley Road Carpentersville, IL, Raceway Woods is jointly managed by the Forest Preserve District of Kane County (FPDKC) and Dundee Township. A brief history of Raceway Woods (originally called Meadowdale International Raceway) can be found at:
We will be offering the standard point-to-point courses: white and yellow for beginners, orange for intermediate, and red and green for advanced. All courses will have pre-printed maps.
Self-Regulated Starts for Red and Green Courses: At registration on these two courses participants will only be given a clue sheet. A box of Red and a box of Green maps that have pre-printed courses and clue sheets on them will be located adjacent to the Red/Green Start. This will be a self-regulated Start: A map can be picked up after you have actually e-punched the Start Control. Try to provide separation of at least a minute (or two) between your start and someone starting ahead of you on the same course.
Parking and Staging area: NEW LOCATION IN 2019! Raceway Woods has two small parking areas (one on Huntley Road and one on Route 31), neither of which is large enough to hold our event. Therefore, Parking and Registration will be on Commerce Parkway (1.25 miles north of the Route 31 and Huntley Road (Main Street) intersection. A remote Start and Finish will be a short walk/jog (225 meters) from Registration. Water and refreshments will be available at the Registration area only. If the weather is wet we will have a couple of small pop up tents (10x10) to provide cover for the registration area. Note: The closest toilet facility will be at the small Raceway Woods parking area (near the iconic Silo) about 500 meters from the Registration area – plan ahead.
