Run in the chilliest 5K around!
The Schaumburg Park District’s annual Chilly Chili 5K will begin at 10 a.m. on Dec. 5 at the Schaumburg Golf Club, 401 N. Roselle Road. The race is USA Track & Field certified and will take runners through the beautiful scenery of the golf course. Participants are invited to enjoy a chili lunch after the race where those 21 and older will receive one free beer.
The Chilly Chili is for age 10 and older and includes multiple age divisions. Awards are given to the top three finishers in each division. The 5K is a Schaumburg CAN (Children – Activity – Nutrition) event.
“People love running in this race,” said Alyssa Danca, fitness supervisor. “It’s a fun route. Warming up with chili when you’re finished makes the event even more enjoyable!”
