Start Times & Location

All races start and finish near Oak Park & River Forest High School, 201 N. Scoville, Lake & Scoville, Oak Park, IL. Races start just east of the high school on Ontario.

• 10K Run start time: 8:00am
• 5K Run/Walk start time: 8:15am
• Youth Mile start time: 9:15am at OPRF track.

NOTE: We use the B-Tag timing system, a tag built into your bib. The 5K Walk is not timed, so B-Tags are not on bibs issued to walkers. Results and finish placement are based on B-Tag times, not your physical place in the race. Someone can finish after you but still have a faster time!
