Packet Pick Up:

Racers will have two chances to pick up their race day packets.  First time to pick up packets will be at Chandler Park on the Square in Macomb, IL from 3PM to 5PM.  Don’t worry if you miss this time, the second time to register will be on race day.  It is recommended to pick up packet early for easier filing.  Your race day packet will include your Race bib, Course Map, Insurance Waiver, and brochure.  Racers will receive their shirts at this time as well.  Have ID’s accessible for proper participant check in.


When Racers pick up their packets, they are required to sign an insurance waiver.  This waiver will be kept on file in the WIU ROTC Office.

Road Construction:

Due to bad timing, There is some road construction on N 1500 Rd in between Spring Lake Rd and E 1100 St.  This means you cannot directly access Spring Lake Park from Route 67. Below is a link to go to directions from WIU to Spring Lake Park around the construction.  We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

A course map will be emailed to you.
