Homewood Classic vs. Road Construction


Because of road construction, in the form of ripping all concrete from the ground, we’ve been forced to modify our race route.  I know you all hate 180 degree corners with an unbridled, passionate hatred; so at first we only added two of them to the new course. But then we realized that we didn’t want to try to fist fight every pre-regged rider in Chicagoland, so we’ve since finalized our modified course into an “L” shape. With one 180 degree turn, yes. We are trapped between 183rd street, the Metra Station and the road construction. Next year we’ll be running the original course, no worries. See the map below for this years course.

  1. Is the course running clockwise or counterclockwise?
