$20

Be a part of the South Loop’s newest community event!

2020 Race Medal

There are a lot of activities and events missing from the South Loop this summer; festivals, Movies in the Park, Summer Dance, and the many race events that pass through the neighborhood.

This year we’re starting a new tradition with our very own neighborhood 5k run/walk, in a virtual format.

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL 5K?

A virtual 5k gives you the support of a fellow community of runners along with the flexibility to complete your race on your schedule and desired route.  You can run or walk outdoors or on a treadmill and either alone or with a group of friends (please observe proper social distancing).

It’s all about setting a goal to complete the race distance and following through. Then put that hard-earned medal around your neck, take a selfie, and share your accomplishment with fellow participants by posting a photo on social media and in the dedicated event Facebook group!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

  1. Find your motivation and sign up!!!
  2. Run or walk a 5k distance during the month of August
  3. Don your custom race medal and share your achievement on social media using the hashtag #run thesouthloop
  4. Enjoy the post-run feeling of accomplishment
