The 5k starts at 6:30 pm. Make sure you allot enough time to pick up your timing chip. Pre-race check-in is required for all runners and begins at 5:30 pm.
Can I walk instead of running?
Of course! The participants who choose to walk will use the sidewalks on the route and only be walking half the distance (2.5 K).
Can young children participate?
Absolutely! However, parents are required to accompany young children along the race route as the race is winding through the streets in Park Ridge.
Can children Second Grade and younger register for the race?
You bet! If your child wants a t-shirt like the big kids, just register him/her using the RunRace site. There are no awards for Second Grade and below, but the little ones can participate in all the fun! Please remember that young children need to be supervised by an adult especially when on the course.

Once you’ve crossed the finish line, head into Barry Gym for the after-party. There will be music, light refreshments and the award presentation up until 10:00 pm.
