About This Activity

Come and kick off Mokena’s annual holiday celebration with the Grace to the Finish 5k race. The event will take place on Saturday, November 23, 2013. This year’s Grace to the Finish 5K will be a cornerstone piece of the Village of Mokena’s annual Christmas Fest, which includes: Santa’s Workshop, Parade of Lights, Mayor’s Tree Lighting ceremonies, and Christmas Dance, that have for many years made Mokena a great place to call home. 

The predominant proceeds raised from this race will be given to Mokena’s Cancer Support Center to support all they do in caring for families touched by cancer. All remaining proceeds will be donated to assist local football organizations in growing character in the lives of our area’s youth.

The Chip-Timed, USA Track and Field Certified Race Course is a flat, out-and-back scenic route that begins on Front Street in the historic district of Mokena, winds through the tree-lined streets of the surrounding neighborhoods, and onto the bike path leading into the Hickory Creek Forest Preserve. Race takeoff is at 9:00 A.M.  This year’s pre- and post-race activities will include giveaways at our sponsorship tables; live music; food and beverages; and the announcement and medaling of the top three finishers in each age category.
