To determine the best route to travel via public transportation, either use the CTA's trip planner at http://tripsweb.rtachicago.com/. Since we are less than a mile from the Metra Oak Park stop serving the Union Pacific West Line you may want to take the train. You can view a schedule at Metra's web site: http://metrarail.com.

In addition there is lots of free on-street parking south of Lake Street and west of the High School. Please look for no parking signs and DO NOT park along the race course.
