Fall Fun Run 2019

Washington Park (map)


Our 1 mile Fun Runs are celebratory events held twice a year that showcase the hard work of 18,000 Chicago Run children and youth and their commitment to health and wellness. Chicago Run provides these events free of charge to all of our students and their family members in the fall and spring. Fun Runs typically attract over 4,000 participants from across the city.

This is the perfect opportunity to witness the powerful impact Chicago Run has on Chicago children and youth. Volunteers help hand out healthy snacks, water, and finisher ribbons and most importantly, cheer on our students. Please email veronica@chicagorun.org if you are interested in volunteering.
