Virtual New Years Day 5K in Historic Downtown Long Grove

A fun 5k to start your New Year off right and run the "Fluff" out of 2020!  You have the whole month of January to get your run done, (January 1, 12:00am - January 31, 12:00pm).

Walk or run to support Orphans of the Storm Animal Shelter and do something healthy for yourself at the same time! This is a VIRTUAL RUN, but will have lots of community engagement with social media, posting your run results, and photos.
While you might not be running as a group, you will be running alone together. You can also set up a social group and have anyone join from anywhere! Get your colleagues, friends and family together and do it as a team!

Register online
Once your registration is complete, your running packet will be created.  Any time after January 1, 2021 and before January 31, go out for a 5k (3.1 miles) run or walk using your phone or Fitbit or anything you choose to time yourself,  After your run/walk, come back to this website and submit your time.  Post your photos from the run on your Instagram and tag @enjoylonggrove #HDLGNEWYEARSDAY5K
