District 81 5K Run/Walk
On Saturday, October 3rd, School District 81 will be holding a 5k charity run in the Village. The race route is posted at the bottom of this page. You can register and learn more by clicking here.
The race will take place from 7:00 am to approximately 11:30 AM.
Run organizers are expecting anywhere from 350-500 participants.
The run will start at Kennedy School with runners making their way through various residential areas to Lincoln Middle School and then turning around and following the same route back to Kennedy School where the run will finish.
We kindly ask that residents on Seymour, Denley, Goss, and Wehrman avoid parking on the streets between 7:30 am and noon.
Streets will not be closed; however, drivers will encounter intermittent stops as police momentarily block intersections in order to allow runners to cross. Residents in the 9800 blocks of Soreng and Garden Court can expect a higher amount of street congestion because the route includes Soreng Avenue. Please use caution when driving through the area.
Officials from the Police and Public Works departments and School District 81 will be in the area prior to the start of the run setting-up traffic control devices and laying out the route.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience in the Village’s efforts to make this charity event a success.
