Race The Twilight

RACE THE TWILIGHT – 7PM AUGUST 2, 2014

Bring your family, friends, and neighbors and join us in Elm Grove for a fantastic evening run. Race The Twilight follows a scenic, undulating course through a beautiful, tree-covered residential area in Elm Grove and finishes on Elm Grove Road. Race The Twilight provides competitors with a unique and unparalleled experience – you have to be there in 2014 so you do not miss out! There will be massage discounts for everyone who registers ahead of time!

Have a child who likes to run? Sign them up for the Kid’s race if they want to do a shorter distance! They will receive a t-shirt if they register before July 23rd!

Lastly, but most importantly, please follow the instructions of the Volunteers and the Village Police for a safe and enjoyable experience! The Volunteers give up their time on Race Day to provide necessary logistics support for Race The Twilight, and the police officers of Elm Grove have your safety foremost in their minds. Thank them!

RACE INFORMATION

PARKING

Please park in designated areas in downtown Elm Grove. Currently, parking is allowed in the U.S. Bank parking lot across the street from the Start | Finish staging area, and in the Eastern section of Sendik’s parking lot. We will have additional parking available as race day approaches. Signs will direct you to the designated parking areas. We ask that you respect private property and only park in the spots designated for the race.  Please refrain from parking along the race course, and obey all laws and ordinances – we do not want anyone to be ticketed or towed!

START | FINISH & RACE COURSE

The Start and Finish is on Elm Grove Road just North of Watertown Plank Road. The Registration area will be located in the parking lot at 13500 Watertown Plank Road (there is no participant or spectator parking available at this location).

The course starts on Elm Grove Road and follows residential streets bounded by Watertown Plank Road and Highland Drive. From the Start, competitors will run to Juneau Boulevard and then follow Upper Ridgeway, Circle Drive, Oakdale, and Corto to Madeira Drive. From there competitors will run down San Jose, cross Juneau, and run North on Greenway Terrace. The last mile of the race follows Hillside, Woodlawn, and finishes under the canopy on Elm Grove Road.

With the exception of Elm Grove Road, please note that the roads on which you will run remain partially open. Cones will be used to mark the outer boundary of the route, and we strongly recommend you carefully review the race course beforehand (a formal course map will be available soon). Stay between the cones and the side of the road and always obey all officers and course sentries.

Although Race The Twilight is not currently USATF certified, be assured that the 5 Km course is accurate – the course has been accurately measured based on USATF guidelines.
