Running is good for you because it’s a full-body exercise but mostly because it produces CO2 that plants will eat instead of you. Marvel the circle of life with this Groupon.
$19 for Registration to Chicago Chinatown 5K for One, Including Fees (Up to $38.61 Value)
Starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday, July 13, Chinatown Square Plaza will hum with runners prepared to race in the Chicago Chinatown 5K & Youth Run. The race features three different routes: a 5K for adults, a quarter-mile run for kids aged 9–11, and a 200-meter run for kids aged 6–8. Registration–which must be completed before June 21–includes a t-shirt and chip time. Youth Run registration is not included with this Groupon.
Chicago Chinatown 5K & Youth Run
Fittingly, a traditional Chinese lion dance precedes the Chicago Chinatown 5K and Youth Run. Both the dance and the races aim to raise awareness for Chicago’s Chinatown community, while raising money for non-profit organizations such as the Chinese American Museum of Chicago. The race route, which starts at Chinatown Square Plaza and heads south on Wentworth Avenue, before looping back, lets runners of all ages explore the neighborhood’s sights and sounds. At the finish line, runners can celebrate their accomplishment by participating in a post-race raffle or taking a post-race shower under a cooler of Gatorade.
