Manhattan Irish fest Parade 5K
This is the largest winter 5K in all of Will County IL. It is the only 5K that starts a parade, runs throughout the actual parade route and is included in the festivities inside the Irish Fest Tent. So no matter where you line up at the start line you are FLOAT #1! We run on a USATF certified course and are CARA certified.
We've had a medical program send us 39 runners as part of the fitness challenge group, a group of runners who trained to run a 5K in under 30 minutes, and participants who trained to run in their first 5K. And last but not least we had the PUP Crawlers who is a drinking group that has a running problem. There were 39 participants under the age of 19 that ran with their parents, so this meant that this event has truly become family oriented. Come out and join us in the fun.
