The mile is making its comeback, and we want you to be a part of it! With 5,280 feet of perfect running surface, the Lake Ellyn 1-Mile Classic is a must for your fall calendar. Run a one-mile loop around Lake Ellyn Park, taking in the majestic views of Lake Ellyn and the quintessential community of Glen Ellyn during this beautiful time of year.

Entry fee includes a race shirt. Awards will be presented for each age group/category. Participants in the Kids Dash will race along the final stretch of the mile course. Grownups may accompany children for the Kids Dash but do not need to register. Packet pickup will be available from September 13-15 at Ackerman SFC during front desk hours or at Lake Ellyn Park on race morning.
