The Lake Escape is a rolling, partially shaded figure-8 course traversing the roads around the beautiful twin lakes, Lake Iroquois and Bayles Lake, in Loda, IL.  Starting near the beach of Lake Iroquois, 10k runners will complete the clockwise loop around Bayles Lake prior to heading towards the counter-clockwise loop around Lake Iroquois and finish with a downhill sprint to the beach.  5k runners will only run the loop around Lake Iroquois.  A kid's 1K will be held near the beach immediately following the conclusion of the 10K.    Awards will be given to the overall male and female in each race as well as top 3 age group awards for the following age groups under 15, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+ .  Special Note:  All runners are welcome to take a dip in the lake at the beach to cool off after the race!!  

Starting time for the race will be 7:30 however with chip timing, we will allow a 15-30 minute window to start,  if runners would like to allow more distancing between each other.
