There are two race courses in use this year, which are identical to those used in 2013. Each course runs clockwise with the START / FINISH located on Vernon Avenue between Hazel Avenue and Temple Court in downtown Glencoe. The ‘short’ course will be used for the first six races and is a typical, 4-corner, essentially flat 1.3-kilometer (0.8-mile) criterium course. The ‘long’ course is used in all other races and is a 10-corner, 2.1 kilometer (1.3-mile) lap that includes a descent and brief rise on the western part of the course.
