The Oak Brook Half-Marathon will challenge you with rolling hills, while providing you with a scenic tour of the Village of Oak Brook.
The course will start on wide city streets before turning onto a wooded path near the Oak Brook Polo Grounds, and through the McDonalds Corporate Campus. It then crosses into Oak Brook’s beautiful Central Park, via the asphalt-surfaced Oak Brook Bike/Running Path System. After a winding tour of the Village, the course turns south at Spring Road, and connects with the soft crushed limestone trails through Fullerburg Woods. The final three miles of the course include the Bike/Running Path around the Oak Brook Golf Club before finishing in Central Park.
Note: Course Time Limit – For safety reasons, the Half-Marathon course will be open for 3 1/2 hours. Also, runners who do not cross the 5.75 mile mile point (the intersection of Oak Brook Road and 31st St.) by 8:30 AM (an approximate 16:00 min/mile pace) will be directed back to the Finish Line Area (about one mile away).
The revised course will be USATF certified. Note: The certification code for the 2008 course is IL-08087-JW.
