Cougars 5K Run/Walk

October 3, 8:00 am - 11:00 am

$5 – $38

Join us on Saturday, May 16 for the 9th Annual Cougars 5K Run/Walk benefiting the charitable programs of the Kane County Cougars Baseball Foundation, Inc.

Held at Northwestern Medicine Field, the Cougars 5K Run/Walk is a unique event for competitive runners and families looking to enjoy a memorable morning at the ballpark. Runners, walker, families with strollers…all are welcome! There’s no better way to end a race than right at home plate. Participants will receive a high-five from Ozzie and Annie during the final turn, while getting a look at themselves on the video board as they cross the finish line.

Children up to the age of 12 can participate in the Inside the Park Dash, a roughly half-mile fun run for only $5. Ozzie and Annie will also be waiting for them at home plate to hand out high-fives.

Following the race, all participants will enjoy a complimentary brat or hot dog and beer for those 21 and older. Additional post-race snacks will be provided.

Did we mention free and convenient parking? Close proximity to restrooms at the starting line? Enjoy these great amenities and one of the most unique 5K events held in Chicagoland!
