We are the Original Christmas in July Races 20 miles west of Chicago. The 6/12/24-Hour races take runners on a 0.9732971994 mile USATF certified paved loop course around a lake in Lisle Community Park. The entire course is festively decorated. Even Santa shows up to run with the kids! The 5K runners will start at the Lisle High School parking lot and run a small stretch of road until they hit a paved running trail which they will take on their journey in and around Lisle Community Park.
