Event Details


The Highwood Chamber is hosting the Buddy Challenge & 5K Run and pleased to announce that all proceeds from the event will benefit the non-profit organization Kids Rank. The Buddy Challenge is based on the US Army Major General Jimmie J. Wells Challenge. Participants will pair up and be put to the test doing push ups, calisthenics, the fireman carry, buddy drag, piggyback carry and the consisting of 100 upper body and 100 core exercises, and plenty of running in between!  

The Buddy Challenge and 5K Run will kick-off at 9am in front of Bent Fork Bakery, at Walker Avenue and Sheridan Road, and go north into the beautiful grounds of Fort Sheridan and loop back to the finish/start line. The course is a beautiful scenic route with mixed terrain through Highwood and Fort Sheridan. If you don’t have a partner in mind, race organizers will pair up the singles and no participant will race alone. This race is not about the fastest time, it’s about putting yourself to the test, having fun, and taking pride in your efforts while working as a team! Participants will receive a commemorative T-shirt.  For those not interested in participating in the Buddy Challenge, there will be a separate 5K run.
