About This Activity

New for 2014

New location. We've moved the race to Grant Park. That means we've got a few more hills, but a super scenic & easy to get to venue with more parking. .

The ACC school alumni teams of three which have the lowest collective times for this 5K race will be awarded with contributions to their individual scholarship funds. See event website:
