About This Activity

Event details and schedule

The Tom Heighway Memorial 5K starts at 8am on the East side of St Petronille Chruch.  There is parking on the East side of St Pets as well as off of Main St, South of Hillside Ave in the downtown Glen Ellyn Public Parking lot.  Immediately following the race, participants are encouraged to gather at Shannon's Irish Pub at 428 N Main St in Glen Ellyn.  Finishers will be given a drink ticket for Shannon's and awards will be held here.  There will be live music along the course, and following the race there will be live music and fun at Shannon's Irish Pub.  The course runs North from St Pets onto the Illinois Prairie Path, then West to Wheaton, and back through GE neighborhoods to the finish(same as the starting line).  This is fairly relaxed event that welcomes families with kids on bikes.  We ask that all bikes, and anything on wheels, start 5 minutes after the first runners off.  We will award age groups as well as best dressed and best finish.
