Firecracker 5K Run and 2 Mile Walk

Event Date

Highland Park, IL

About This Activity

The Park District of Highland Park invites you to join the 5K run and 2-mile family fun walk to benefit S.M.I.L.E (Scholarships Mean Involvement in Leisure for Everyone)

One hundred percent of the money raised for S.M.I.L.E. goes back to the community and allows families in need of financial assistance to participate in recreational programs.

This flat and fast 5K course begins at Wolter's Field and winds its way through the beautiful tree-lined neighborhoods and the business district of Highland Park before ending back at Wolter's Field. If you are not quite ready for a 5K, opt for the two-mile walk, which follows the same course but bypasses part of the business district. 

All event participants receive a event T-shirt and SWAG bag and there will be prizes for top finishers overall and by age category.
