About This Activity

Come on out and celebrate spring weather with us this coming Easter Weekend! We will have an Easter Egg Hunt immediately after the race. So, don't forget to bring your family to the race!

This place has a super-safe kiddie park with lots of things to do i.e. swing, slide and play houses. It is also an awesome place for spending time with your family before and after the race. Here you can rent a paddle boat, play volleyball, ride a bike, roller blade and cook some burger and hot dogs while while your kids are having a good time at the man made beach.

The course features a combination of a short pavement run in the Independence Grove Forest Preserve and a scenic crushed limestone trail that runs South and North of Des Plaines River Trails.
