Sycamore Invite Itinerary

We run our first race of the season at Afton Forest Preserve in DeKalb on Tuesday. Varsity boys race at 4:45pm, and FS boys at 5:45. The address to Afton FP is:

13998 Crego Road, DeKalb

Take Keslinger Rd west to Somonauk Road, and turn left. When Somonauk meets Perry Road, turn right. Follow Perry Rd to Crego Rd and turn left. The course will be on the left after less than 1 mile. Allow the parking attendants to help you. Team camp will be near the somewhere near the pavilion.

The course is not all that friendly to spectators, in that you will see them start, and see them finish.  It's an out and back type of course, with coaches and spectators not allowed east of the river after the start of the race. Please stay near the finish line for this meet. You'll see our team charging to the finish, and none of us will get in trouble for going where we've been asked not to go.

Concessions are available, but we will not be stopping on the way home. Bring a snack, or sandwich. Parents who choose to sign out their athletes in the team camp may do so, but may not leave until the conclusion of the Frosh Soph team cool down (roughly 6:20).
