    About This Event


    We're back with more BBQ! We will still have the flat, fast course that you’ve loved about previous years races, but we’ve stepped up our game in the party department. To keep with the feel of our community race, we’ve partnered again with Famous Dave’s in Bolingbrook (located at 704 Janes Ave.) to bring you the ultimate in race experiences. You want food? You got it! All runners will receive a BBQ sandwich and two sides, along with a free bottle of Famous Dave’s BBQ sauce. You want more? We got that too! Check out what’s back this year:

    • Kid’s Fun Dash! The fan favorite is back for runners 10 years and younger! All racers will get their very own cape.
    • Feast at the Finish Line! All racers get a BBQ sandwich and two sides provided by Famous Dave’s.
    • New shirt! We went for ultra-comfort this year with a super-soft race t-shirt!
    • Sauces for Troops: Famous Dave’s will be sending bottles of BBQ sauce to our troops overseas. For a $1 donation you can write a message on a bottle of BBQ sauce. Make your donation during registration or on race day.
    • All 5k and 10k finishers will receive a special commemorative medal.
