For Safety Reasons
For safety reasons, no bikes, skates, or pets are allowed. A water table will be located midway through the course. Restrooms are located at the start/finish, and along the course (in the Techny Prairie Park and Meadowhill Park). We will have a course marshall on a bicycle leading the runners, and also monitoring the pathways. Because this is on Park District paths, please be aware that there may be other users (walkers/riders) also using the path. This event is rain or shine - with no refunds. If thunderstorms occur, we will monitor the park district lightning detectors and protocol for your safety.
We would like to thank Janzen, Janzen & Chwa for 11 years of generous support of the St Norbert Block Party and the 5K Fun Run/Walk!
