Race Wheaton

The Race Wheaton package is back for 2021!

The race season will kick-off with Cosley Zoo Run for the Animals (June 5) and will include Light the Torch 5K Night Run (October 2) and the Lions Club Reindeer Run 5K (December 4).

The Fun Run in Color, traditionally held in spring, will not take place this year due to ongoing state mitigations and gathering restrictions.

Register for 3 races for only $75, more than a 25% savings than registering for each race individually. The Race Wheaton Package includes a commemorative race shirt from each run and other awesome perks for being a part of this challenge. Registration opens on or about March 1, 2021.
