Runners start the out-and-back course on AT&T Center Drive, heading first along a couple of short winding loops along the U-shaped road before turning onto Lakewood Boulevard, where they turn right and head toward the Paul Douglas Forest Preserve. After crossing Huntington Boulevard, runners then head onto the trail, which they follow for the next few miles as it winds its way along the western, northern and eastern edges of the grassland areas.
