Frank Lloyd Wright Races( 4 reviews )

I ran this race in 2012 and in 2009. The 5K goes first, and the 10K begins after the 5K is completed, so it can make for a long morning if you're with people doing both races. Still, the course is completely residential and totally flat. There are enough turns to break it up and make it interesting. If you're actually paying attention to the scenery, you'll see several Frank Lloyd Wright homes as you run. The long-sleeved cotton t-shirt is nothing special, but the race is pretty cheap so I didn't expect otherwise. Parking is great! The race starts and ends right by Oak Park River Forest High School. Only the winners get medals, so don't expect one just for participating. The field is actually really competitive; several sub-6:00/mile runners participate. If you're looking to PR in a 5K or 10K, I highly suggest running this race!
