Thank You!

Thank You to everyone who participated in the 21st Annual St. Charles 5k!  It was a great success with 887 registered participants.  The day was absolutely beautiful with a gentle breeze and sunshine!  So many people help to make this race a success and if I try to name them I know I will forget someone.  THANK YOU to everyone who helped in anyway!  We love you and appreciate you!

Details for the 22nd Annual St. Charles 5K will be announced in the spring of 2018.

Register, Register, Register! Please…..

Guess what the next holiday is?  LABOR DAY!!!!  And what does Labor Day bring?  The 21st Annual St. Charles 5K of course!  132 of you have already registered – Thank You!  For those of you who haven’t – what are you waiting for?  Not that I want to rush summer but September 4th will be here before you know it and I wouldn’t want you to miss out on the most fabulous, fun, family friendly race of the year!

Tommie and his Applebee’s crew will be there cooking up delicious hamburgers and hot dogs and we always have lots of bagels, donuts, apples and much more.  Planet Fitness is generously donating our water again this year (Thank You PF!).  There will be crafts for the kids, tons of raffles for young and old alike and a free Kids Fun Run.

This year only the first 600 registered participants get free t-shirts and we usually have that in pre-registrations. Chances are we will not have this year’s t-shirts available on race day for same day registrations.

Pre- registration 13 and over $20 (must pre-register by 11:00 p.m. on 8/31/2017)

Same Day Registration 12 and over $30

Only 4 Months Away….

Can you believe that the 5k is only 4 months away?  Thank you to the 62 participants that registered early!  With all of this rainy and chilly weather I can’t help but look forward to a nice warm summer day.  But every website I look at says that 55-60 degrees and overcast is good running weather for a 5k.  Do you agree?  If that is the case, I guess we have been experiencing several days of optimal running weather.  I really would like a few warm, sunny days though….

Don’t for get to register!  Click here to register on line or print the registration form and mail it in.
