Short Course: 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.

Long 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.

Fun for the Family
A Race for Everyone

In addition to Junior races for Boys & Girls and both 9-14 and 15-18 age groups, we have our famous Children's race at noon sharp!

Of course, even if you don't want to ride, come out and join us for live music, food and fun at the North Shore's best block party of the year!


As Glencoe is a small community, parking is at a premium. Once again, the Glencoe Grand Prix is taking extra care to assist residents and businesses with parking options during race day. Just like last year, parking in regular spaces is limited to 2 hours per Village regulations. If you are in a space for more than two hours, you will be ticketed.

Where NOT to park

Even though you are able to park in the spaces legally, we are asking that riders on race day DO NOT park in any of the spaces on Park Avenue between Vernon and Hazel, any spaces on Vernon north of Park Avenue (the final turn) or any of the spaces on Village Court Road in front of the Village Hall where race registration takes place. Please park one block east in the commuter lots of the Glencoe train station.

Park at the Metra Station

Since we’ve begun this event, we have stressed the need for riders to park in the commuter lots at the train station, barely a block east of Green Bay Road. These lots were resurfaced in 2011 and are very close to the race course. Please be considerate of our gracious hosts and park in one of those lots if you are racing. Additional parking can be easily found in Glencoe south of the race course.

Public Transportation

In addition, Route 213 on the Pace Suburban Bus travels along Green Bay Road and stops at the intersection with Park Avenue. Schedules and fares are available online at Pace Bus.

Host Housing

Hosting riders in individual homes is a huge factor in recruiting Pro teams and directly supports the Glencoe Educational Foundation (GEF). The GEF is responsible for providing housing to riders who can’t afford a hotel, if we don’t find enough beds, the GEF will be required to purchase hotel accommodations. Please help us keep our costs down by hosting. The accommodations most often are beds or airbeds in guest rooms or on a recreation room floor.

Questions & Answers

Q: Will I have to feed riders and their guests?

A: No. Hosts often invite riders to join them for a meal but it is not expected. They will need the use of the kitchen, (Riders will clean up after themselves). They will need the use of your refrigerator and counter space. Some may ask permission to use your washer and dryer.

Q: Will my home be treated like a Holiday Inn?

A: No. Riders stay in many different homes around the U.S. and they very much want to be invited back. They know how to be good guests.

Q: Will I have to define the limits of what I’m willing to do?

A: No. The Host Housing coordinator is an advocate for both the riders and the hosts. You tell us your limits and we will pass it on to the riders. Riders are very flexible and gracious guests.

Please contact Nikki Cypranowski at: with any additional housing-related information or questions.

Race Registration

Please note that all racers must have a valid 2016 USAC license which must be presented at registration. A beginner one-day race license ($10) is available for category 5 Men and Category 4 Women racers. Any former member with a racing category excluded by the beginner one-day race license is eligible to purchase an experienced one-day race license ($25) once per year. These licenses are available online only, beginning Spring 2016 at USA Cycling. An annual race license ($70) is required for entry into all other category races. These may be purchased online at USA Cycling. In order to facilitate quick and efficient registration, please have your license ready before race day.

Racers must compete within their USAC designated category.

Children participating in the Kid’s Race do not need a USAC license. Prior to receiving a race number, their parents will have to fill out a USAC non-competitive release form, copies of which will be located at the Kid's Race information table at the far north end of Vernon Ave.
