Coming back to Wheaton for its fifth year, a 5K family friendly run/walk that takes place in the heart of Wheaton, IL. Runners and walkers weave through the streets of downtown and Northside Park, ending in Memorial Park for a final color party on Karlskoga Avenue. This untimed event emphasizes fun over competition. It’s open to both avid and first-time runners as well as families and children of all ages.
