    About This Event

    Join the Bolingbrook Park District by participating in Parkie's 5K. Parkie's 5k has been running for over 10 years and has grown to be one of the most popular 5k events in the area.

    Parkie's 5k will use bib chip timing again this year! This means even greater accuracy for your race time and nothing to attach to your shoe.

    The Course

    The race starts and finishes in front of the Bolingbrook Recreation and Aquatic Complex. The USATF certified course winds through subdivisions and park property on paved streets. Course monitors, split timers, and water stations will be provided.
