Run or walk through the historic Meadowdale International Raceway, now a Kane County Forest Preserve known as Raceway Woods. Original 3.27 mile track is still in place in this scenic 122 acre park.

Welcome to the online registration page for the 6th annual Raceway 5K Challenge on the historic Meadowdale International Raceway in Raceway Woods in Carpentersville hosted by the Rotary Club of Carpentersville. Gather your friends, family members & random strangers and prepare to run or walk through the historic race track. Experience all the curves, straightaways, bank turns, and hills this challenging race has to offer!  Need we say “hills” again?

Proceeds from this event will benefit the  charities of the Rotary Club of Carpentersville including the Carpentersville F.I.S.H. Food Pantry, and Operation Warm – new coats purchased for Carpentersville kids in need. Thanks for supporting these efforts. We look forward to seeing you out there.

Craft Donuts will also be supplying some of their tasty donuts for racers, and will also have nitro cold brew coffee for sale. Be sure to bring cash or a credit card if you are in need of some extra caffeine or sugar!
