Make a right at the first street, Barkley Ave. Immediate left ontoFrontage Rd. Take a right at Talbot and follow that down to Summerlakes Park parking lot, wherethere is parking. This way pretty much ensures parking, but you have to walk past the baseball fieldand over the bridge to get where the teams are.
OR, take Route 59 and cross over Butterfield. Go up about a half-mile, and you'll see a sign forSummerlakes Park. Make a left into the parking lot. If no spaces in the lot, look for a parking spacealong the residential area. Taking this route will get you closer to the tent and runners for childdrop-off, but you may have to park a bit down the street.
Bathrooms are two Porta-Potties, one by the school and one by the field/baseball field.No dogs allowed, sorry!

Parking in thelot is very, very limited. Drop your runner off and find parking on the streets surrounding the park--see parking suggestions map for some places to park. Typically, if you take a right onto Fairviewafter dropping off your runner, you can find parking on 57th, which is the next street up.
You can only make a right turn into the club, and only make a right turn out of the club.No dogs allowed, sorry!Course map can be found at http://s-p-l.org/documents/XC_maps/xc_map_wk4.pdfSaturday, September 15- Co-Ed MeetMarmion Academy1000 Butterfield Rd.Aurora, IL 60502Location hint: Marmion is on Butterfield. Once you turn off Farnsworth it is just up the road on thenorth side. The first entrance is closer to the parking lots; the second entrance will get you closer towhere the tents are--use that for runner (and tent!) drop-off if running late
Marmion asks that the runners/attendees stay clear of the Chapel on the north side of the property,and the three crosses atop the berm.No dogs allowed, sorry!

St. Charles Rd.Lombard, 60148No dogs allowed, sorry!Saturday, September 29 - Championship MeetLewis University1 University Pkwy,Romeoville, IL 60446.Google maps:https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lewis+Universityemail@example.com,-88.08045,12z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x209b430a53abcc7cLocation hint: bring a variety of clothes as it can get very cold. Anticipate there might be a line of cars to get into the parking lot(s) as they sometimes charge $1.00 for parking, and collecting that holds up the line. The main (by the tents) parking lot fills up fast, so plan time-wise if you have to park in one of the secondary lots, as you'll need to walk about 5-10 minutes to the tent.Course map can be found at http://s-p-l.org/documents/XC_maps/xc_map_wk5.pdfSaturday, October 20 - CYO MeetMaryville Academy
