    Saturday, September 1
    Summerlakes Park
    3S010 Talbot Ave
    Warrenville, IL 60555
    Location hint: Two ways to approach the park once you get off I-88: take Route 59 to Butterfield,
    then make a left on Butterfield. Make a right at the first street, Barkley Ave. Immediate left onto
    Frontage Rd. Take a right at Talbot and follow that down to Summerlakes Park parking lot, where
    there is parking. This way pretty much ensures parking, but you have to walk past the baseball field
    and 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 for
    Summerlakes Park. Make a left into the parking lot. If no spaces in the lot, look for a parking space
    along the residential area. Taking this route will get you closer to the tent and runners for child
    drop-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!

    Saturday, September 8
    Downers Grove Swim and Racquet Club
    5560 Fairview Ave
    Downers Grove, IL 60516
    Location hint:  The club is on the west side of Fairview, just south of 55th Street. Parking in the
    lot 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 Fairview
    after 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!
    Saturday, September 15- Co-Ed Meet
    Marmion Academy
    1000 Butterfield Rd.
    Aurora,  IL 60502
    Location hint: Marmion is on Butterfield. Once you turn off Farnsworth it is just up the road on the
    north side.  The first entrance is closer to the parking lots; the second entrance will get you closer to
    where 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!

    Saturday, September 22
    Lombard Commons
    498 E. St. Charles Rd. 
    Lombard, 60148
    No dogs allowed, sorry!
    Saturday, September 29 - Championship Meet 
    Lewis University
    1 University Pkwy,
    Romeoville, IL 60446.
    Google maps:  
    Location 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.
