Race Information

From the Rockford Rivets Stadium parking lot, the 7K course heads through the tunnel underpass, to and over the Sportscore Two path, back through the tunnel, and into the Stadium for your sprint down third base line to home plate. The course is USATF certified with chip timing.

All proceeds benefit the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation (a.k.a. Nik's Wish), a Rockford-based, all-volunteer 501(c)(3) charity, whose mission is to bring precious moments of joy to young adults (18-24), and their loved ones, fighting cancer. We do this by granting and then fulfilling wishes for these young cancer warriors who are too old for Make-A-Wish type programs. Since its founding in 2012, Nik's Wish has granted over 180 wishes in 32 states. To learn more, visit their website at or their Facebook page at
