Event Description:

11:00 AM START! - Lincoln Park at LaSalle Drive & Stockton Drive

Get ready to shake, rattle and roll (or at the very least walk) on the first day of 2018 at Chicago’s 33rd New Year’s Day 5K Run & Walk. This iconic annual sprint is a fave with Windy City fitness enthusiasts. Plus it’s an awesome opportunity to welcome the new year on a healthy footing.

Whether it’s cold, warm, snowy or somewhere between (who can predict?!), the start line is at the south end of Lincoln Park. The course route then wends north along the lakefront bike path to Diversey Harbor before returning to North Avenue.

In addition, there’s also a post-event party at Select Cut Steakhouse that includes the awarding of winner trophies and raffle prizes and a complimentary drink to those 21 years of age and older (with ID) as well as non-alcoholic drinks for other ages and the alcohol-free. The Classic American Buffet Breakfast can be purchased via this registration page or at the post race party at Select Cut Steakhouse.

A portion of run/walk proceeds will benefit the Hope For The Day, a non-profit that achieves proactive prevention by providing outreach and education through self-expression platforms.

The top three in the following categories will receive an age-group award: 19 & under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 & up. The top male and female overall winner will able receive an award and prize.
