Goodie Bag

The 2020 goodie bag includes a t-shirt as well as some cool items from our sponsors. All 5k finishers will receive an awesome finisher medal when they cross the finish line! Wear it with pride in our post-race celebration as you enjoy the sights and sounds of the Bronzeville neighborhood.


The Bronzeville 5k course highlights the historic neighborhood. We hold our race to the highest quality standards, from start to finish. Please note that although we’ll try our best to avoid it, the course and start time is subject to change.

Parking & Transit

There is limited street parking available on a first-come, first-served basis in the Bronzeville neighborhood. We highly encourage taking public transit, carpooling, or biking to the event. There will be participants, volunteers, and spectators on site race morning. Please plan for traffic and allow ample time to make it to the start of the race. Visit the CTA website  for more information on public transit options. Please note that there is no gear check available for this race.

Packet Pickup

Come pick up your race day packet, which includes a race day bib and goodie bag. If you can’t make it to one of the Packet Pickup days, don’t fret you’re welcome to send a friend or family member to pick up your race day necessities – as long as they come armed with a copy of everyone’s registration confirmation. Five packets per person max, please! If you’re picking up packets for other people, please be sure to let them know that you’ve done so. Please note: we are unable to mail out packets.
