Event Details

Ridge Run Start


Chicago's oldest 10K event, celebrating 36 years this Memorial Day. The 5K run/walk and 10K run are certified courses that wind through the historic and beautiful Beverly/Morgan Park neighborhoods. Youth Mile Fun Run available for ages 6 to 12. Free Tot Run ages 6 and under, no registration required.

All participants will receive a dry-tech premium shirt.
All participants will receive a goodie bag and light post race refreshments. Local vendors will be onsite selling food and non-alcoholic drinks.

TIMING The Ridge Run will be utilizing the latest technology in race timing history - The B-tags! B-tags are disposable timing chips located on the race bib. These tags stay on the bibs the entire time.   They provide very accurate timing results. Only the 10K and 5K are timed. Please note race results will be based on B-tag start and B-tag finish times only.

Can I run with my jogging stroller?

Yes, you may run with a jogging stroller.  We ask that you position yourself behind the elite runners as to not interfere with the start of the race.


Can I run with my dog?

No. due to space constraints we do not allow dogs in the Ridge Run.


It says 10K run only - can I walk in the 10K?

We discourage walkers in the 10K as the 5k race starts 1 1/5 hours after the start of the 10K - we shut down the main course about 10 minutes prior to the start of the 5K - if it will take you longer than 1 hour and 20 minutes to finish the 10K you will be directed off the main course to the sidewalk where you will finish  - your time will still be recorded.


Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
