About This Activity

It doesn't get more simple than this: walk / jog / run … drink beer and eat pancakes! Join us at 8:30 AM on Saturday, April 23rd and enjoy a 5k on the Madison County Transit Schoolhouse Trail in Maryville, IL. We've mapped out a course that starts and ends in our parking lot at 142 Wilma Drive, Maryville. Walk, jog, or run ... just cross the finish line and celebrate with your choice of a beer or mimosa.

The race is timed by Toolen's Running Start and there will be a chance to Win (1st), Place (2nd), or Show (3rd) in each of our age divisions. Trophy to overall first place finisher, male and female. Medals to top 3 finishers male and female in each age group: 14 & under, 15-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55+

Whether you are a seasoned runner or beginner, or don't run at all, bring the whole gang out for this family fun event! Ladies, wear your Kentucky Derby-style hats and let us be the judge of the fanciest during our post-race festivities.

Breakfast? We've got you covered ... in flying flapjacks! Chris Cakes will be on hand to flip an unlimited amount of pancakes your way.  Non-runners can enjoy breakfast too for just $7.50 (12 & under $5)!

Kids can participate in the Derby Dash for FREE immediately following the 5K.  They will also get to enjoy other activities planned by our Student Council. Adults can try their luck at some games and bid to win on some amazing silent auction items!
