The Ravenswood Run 5K Returns April 28

On Sunday April 28th at 8am, the 28th annual Ravenswood Run 5K will step off at the corner of Hermitage and Wilson avenues. Runners will make their way through Ravenswood and Lincoln Square, raising money to provide vital support for neighbors relying on the food pantry and community kitchen operated by Ravenswood Community Services.

One of Chicago’s few neighborhood 5Ks, this family-friendly tradition invites runners and walkers to experience the charm of Ravenswood. Each year, more than 3,000 Chicagoans kick off spring with a run around the neighborhood and post-race celebration. Registration is $49 for adults or $15 for kids and includes exclusive Ravenswood Run 2024 swag. Click here to register and for more race info.
