IT'S OFFICIAL -- 2008 LIMESTONE LOPPET
9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 8
McKee Marsh Trails (north end of Blackwell Forest Preserve), Warrenville, IL, on Mack Road, north of Butterfield, east of Highway 59, west of Winfield Road.
Crushed limestone. Trail wil be swept by a DuPage forest-preserve employee beginning at 7:30 a.m. Please use caution when necessary. There are a couple of minor hills and there could be soft gravel on portions of the downhills.
Roller-skiers will race first with one skier starting every 20 seconds, starting right at 9 a.m. We will attempt to seed it as best we can with faster skiers toward the front. CAT-Skiers will race from a mass start around 10 a.m.
We'll have a few overall awards, but at this point, no age-group awards.
Important Note: PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP IF YOU PLAN TO COME, so we can get as many people signed up ahead of time as possible (Bob Richards: bobnanrun "at" sbcglobal.net)
One More Thing: There are toilet facilities right near the start/finish line.
Hope to see you there.
