Exclusive Awards for Runners!
Are you a sprinter or more of a distance runner? We have awards for both!
Sprinters: we challenge you to the King/Queen of the Hill award! The first male and female to reach the top of the hill at Manchester and Bridge Street (a half a mile into the race) will be crowned King & Queen of the Hill at the award ceremony.
Distance runners: awards are given to the top three overall finishers for the 10K and 5K on stage. Additionally, participants can win a medal based on their age bracket (in 5-year increments) and gender.
Walking to End Homelessness is Great Too!
Our 5K walk takes you through the scenic streets of Wheaton, as volunteers and neighbors cheer for each step you take towards ending homelessness. For those looking for a shorter walk, we are also offering a 1K Family Walk (just over half a mile).
That’s right. Strollers are welcome for walkers in the 1K Family Walk or 5K Walk!
Everybody Loves Prizes!
Your child will receive a goody bag at the Kids Corner and can win prizes by playing the games!
Runners and Walkers are also entered to win a door prize! Numerous winners will be selected, with prizes from Naperville Running Company, H4 Personal Training, Yoga by Degrees, HealthTrack Sports Wellness, Granite City and more!
Run 4 Home Volunteers are the Best!
Looking for a different way to get involved? We are asking for your help to fill 225 volunteer positions on race day!
