If you are a runner and live in the western suburbs of Chicago near the Prairie Path, Fox River Trail, or Great Western Trail, it is likely that you have spent hundreds of hours on the network of trails they form. This route is one large loop and tries to encapsulate some of the best sections of trail. Start at the 0.0 mile marker of the Prairie path in Wheaton, head southwest through Warrenville and wind your way to the Fox River in North Aurora, turn north along the beautiful Fox River Trail and enjoy the river through Batavia, Geneva, St. Charles, and Elgin, turn back southeast on the Prairie Path through Wayne and West Chicago, run east on the Great Western Trail through Carol Stream, Glen Ellyn, Lombard and Villa Park until it connects back to the Prairie Path and make the final turn west through Lombard and Glen Ellyn, ending at the 0.0 marker in Wheaton. 100 kilometers of trail that lead you through more than a dozen different suburbs. The trail is primarily crushed limestone with occasional stretches of pavement.

Looks like a super interesting course. Good idea for a route.
