Race Information

Nearly 26 years ago, a 5K charity event was born to honor Bob Blazier’s unparalleled community accomplishments. At the time, Bob was working tirelessly with a handful of community champions to reinvigorate downtown Crystal Lake by renovating, reconstructing, and raising the curtain on a new performing arts center. Recognizing the important future role that Raue Center would play for the community, Bob asked that this new 5K race benefit the historic non-profit theater.

The run begins in downtown Crystal Lake, right outside of the beautiful and historical Raue Center for the Arts. The course will take you through the quaint neighborhoods surrounding downtown crystal lake and wind you back to finish where you started.
