Alternative to Soldier Field 10

The Elgin Valley Fox Trot is held every Memorial Day (May 26th this year).  It's a great alternative to the Soldier Field 10.  There are a couple of challenging hills and a great homestretch for fast finishes.  It beats the hell out of trying to navigate around people on the lakefront path.  It's not a great course for a PR at this distance -- but the added benefit of this race is the all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast immediately following the race.  Well worth the travel.

No online registration for this race.  They do it the old fashioned way.  Application is on the City of Elgin website:   www.cityofelgin.org

I think that will be a good one. I agree that Soldier Field 10 is a PITA.
