Race Information

The Hot Tamale 5K at Montrose Harbor in Lincoln Park raises funds to help hard-working people in Central America who are living on less than $1 a day. Runners are invited to grab their running shoes and join other runners in beating the pavement to live Latin music. The race ends with the best chips, salsa, and, of course, TAMALES (!) Chicago has to offer.
