It’s not always easy to find a great activity that the whole family can enjoy together. So don’t miss the chance to take part in the 28th Annual Grayslake 5K Run & Walk taking place on Saturday, July 13, 2019 at 8:00am. The Grayslake Chamber of Commerce hosts this event every year, and Churchill, Quinn, Richtman & Hamilton, Ltd proudly sponsors it, so people of all ages and athletic abilities can participate in a day of healthy togetherness. Runners, walkers, strollers and wheelchair athletes are encouraged to participate in this race through historic Grayslake.
For those with a competitive spirit, there will be AWARDS for top 3 finishers in the categories of males overall, wheelchair males overall, females overall, wheelchair females overall, as well as the top three male and female finishers in each of 17 age groups, from age 9 – 80+. The Champion Chip timing system will be used so you can have confidence in the official race results.
The race begins and ends on Center Street in downtown Grayslake.
Participants in the 5K can expect a t-shirt for the first 500 preregistered runners (sizes cannot be guaranteed, but size requests will try to be honored), post race refreshments and a whole lot of fun. In case you needed another great reason to sign up for the event, Proceeds from the Grayslake Chamber 5K go to the Grayslake Chamber Scholarship Fund which annually provides scholarships to seniors who will be attending a 2 or 4 year college/university.
If you have kids aged 5 – 8 that aren’t up for the distance of the 5K, there’s a special Kids Fun Run just for them that runs from Lake Street to Whitney Street (2 blocks)! This race starts at 7:30am, and all Fun Run participants receive shirts, ribbons and refreshments.
