Located along the scenic Fox River in Geneva, the Swedish Days Lopp 5K promises an unbelievable race experience. As part of the Swedish Days Festival supported by Northwestern Medicine, we encourage you to tie-in with the Scandinavian theme with your attire. This spirited race is an annual tradition you don't want to miss. Presented by Geneva Chamber of Commerce and coordinated by Geneva Running Outfitters. Race starts and finishes at Gunnar Anderson Forest Preserve, 719 S Batavia Ave, Geneva, IL 60134 (behind the government center). In addition, there will be a Kids’ Dash race for ages 1-8 that begins at 7:15 am. Register for both races below.
