Parking Information for the St. Charles North Invitational

Saturday, October 5th, 2013


Coaches and athletic directors:  Please forward this information to your spectators.


For the upcoming St. Charles North Invitational there will be a variety of parking options.  Please read the following options carefully.  Leroy Oaks is in the midst of being reconfigured so we are still learning from a previous invitational (the Leavey Invite) and still working with the Forest Preserve District, the police, and the fire department to ensure a smooth and efficient process. 



Busses will be allowed to drop off teams near the barn and depart or park in the Nature Center of Leroy Oakes.  If there is a potential for inclement weather, please plan to have your bus stay close and have a way to communicate with your driver.




At Leroy Oaks Forest Preserve

Vehicles with state-issued handicap plates or shields will have reserved parking.  No general spectator parking will be allowed at the park. 


At Riverside Community Church (37W130 Crane Road, St. Charles).

The church is located at the corner of Randall and Crane Roads and allows spectators to park in their lots.  There is a path along Randall that enters Leroy Oakes Forest Preserve.  It is roughly a ¾ mile walk into the park where you are near the 2-mile mark of the race.  It is roughly a 1.25 mile walk from the parking lot to the starting line.  There is a hill on the path and up to the starting line.

PLEASE RESPECT THE CHURCH PROPERTY.  Keep the property clean.  There are NO bathrooms available.  PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE CHURCH.  Please park at the back of the parking lot facing Crane Rd.

The Clerk’s office is located at the corner of Randall Road and Oak Street.  We will have a shuttle busses going from the parking lot to Leroy Oakes starting at 7:30 AM and running continuously through the day until 15 minutes following the awards presentation.  While the Clerk’s office is about 1.5 miles from Leroy Oakes, there is no safe manner to walk.  Please use the shuttle busses.


Please DO NOT PARK on Dean Street, anywhere that is not a designated parking spot (or parking area),  at the Leroy Business Complex, or the medical offices located on Dean Street.  Parking in these areas may lead to being ticketed or towed.
