After careful consideration,  and review of Covid-19 positivity trending in Kane County, we are making the responsible decision to convert this event to a virtual model. While we had countless safety protocols in place, we feel this is necessary to keep all volunteers and registrants healthy and safe.  Please watch the event website for updates on the new virtual version of this event.  There will still be shirts and goody bags for those who met the deadline, a costume contest, and we are adding several raffles and prizes to this now virtual event!

Have fun with this Covid twist and rest assured next year will be our best 5k/10k event yet!
