About This Activity

Join us for the 2014 Running of the Rams 5K!

In the spirit of the famous event in Spain, runners will take off on a fast 5K course in Champaign, followed several minutes later by several local elite runners who, while running as "The Rams", will attempt to chase them down! The loop course winds west and south from St. John Lutheran School in Champaign around the Centennial Park area before a final dash on John Street back to the school. Can you beat the Rams to the finish line? Those that do will earn a special prize. Come join us for what will be an exciting annual event!

Age-group awards to the top runners and the male / female overall winners are invited to run as Rams in 2015!

Kids Ages 0-5 can participate in a "Running of the Lambs.", also held at St. John Lutheran Church. This race will be walker-friendly, as those not wishing to run with the rams will be started after the Rams have been released.
