Runners take your mark! This week's Dishes are in honor of the first annual lakefront PRIDE 5K run/walk, which will take place in Chicago on Thursday, June 26. The race, produced by Star Events, kicks off at 7:30 pm at Fullerton and Lake Shore Drive, followed by a post-race party featuring DJ Adam LeBlanc of the popular local band Sixteen Candles.
The $50 individual registration fee includes a limited edition T-shirt designed by Borris Powell of Borris Powell Designs, valuable coupons and special gifts from local area businesses, and two drink tickets for use during the post-race party. Everyone is encouraged to register with a partner, and those that “couple up” will each receive a special $5 registration discount.
The PRIDE 5K race will benefit the new Center on Halsted Senior Center (set to open in Fall 2014). For more information and to register, visit ILoveRuns.com. You can also follow PRIDE 5K on Facebook and Twitter for regular race updates.
