Kick off the summer with friends and family and enjoy a beautiful day at the most fantastical park in Illinois. Gina's Gallop is a real reason to run, in memory of and in support of those who struggle with depression and thoughts of suicide. Together we can make a difference to break down the stigma surrounding this indiscriminate, life threatening, yet treatable disease.

Certified by USATF (IL-14053-JW) the fast and flat, newly designed course winds around Arlington Park's neatly manicured tree-filled estate. The race is CARA certified with Chronomix Computerized Timing. Soft drinks and two beer tickets for adults will be provided after the race in the well landscaped picnic grove area. Take a seat close to the starting barriers near the band stage and enjoy live music, fun, and entertainment for the whole family. After the 5K join the 10,000 spectators to cheer on 48 young runners (10-years-old and under) as they break out of the gates on the track and race towards the finish line in a 100-yard Dash.
