Race season starts with Neighbors’ House 5K
DeKALB – The 10th annual Neighbors’ House 5K Run will take place at 8 a.m. Sunday, April 27, at Hopkins Park in DeKalb.
“This is a great way for runners to begin the race season right here in our community. Or, a good end of hibernation for first-time runners. Either way, it’s a great way to help students and families in our community,” said Kyle White, director of Neighbors’ House.
The 3.1-mile course starts and finishes in Hopkins Park, and utilizes the nature trail. The top male and female race finishers will receive a medal and a gift certificate. There also will be medals for top male and female finishers in various age categories.
All participants are eligible for the post-race raffle, which includes gift certificates from local businesses.
Runners and walkers may register online via www.neighborshouse.org or email Paul Gin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The pre-registration fee is $25, by April 14, and race day registration is $30. All pre-registrants receive a T-shirt. Race-day registrants will receive T-shirts while supplies last.
The Neighbors’ House 5K is being sponsored by Edward Jones, A-Tec Ambulance, The Daily Chronicle, Suter Co., Inc., Northern Rehab & Sports Medicine, DeKalb Mechanical, Kishwaukee Community Hospital, Go Self-Insured, and others.
All the proceeds from the race will benefit Neighbors’ House literacy and academic enrichment programs throughout DeKalb County.
