Runners follow an out-and-back course for the Schaumburg Half Marathon & 5K Turkey Trot, which starts in the Busse Forest Nature Preserve, just inside the west entrance of the preserve off Higgend Road, and unfolds along a winding route through the park’s paved pathways and trails. Along the race route, there’s a variety of scenery inside the preserve, from wide-open areas along 590-acre Busse Lake in the middle of the park to the forest trails that wind along its eastern edges.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
