Chicago Double Racing Festival pits runners against each other in a test of endurance, both physical and mental. The day begins with a 5- or 10K run, with first place finishers earning a bright yellow jersey. Then, runners take a break for an hour, recouping and preparing for the next leg of their journey. Heats meet back at the starting line to compete once again, this time in a 3- or 5K dash. Every participant earns a medal and t-shirt, with top finishers taking home special accolades and cash prizes.
With plants originating from 40 countries in the northern hemisphere, a trip through the 1,700 acres of The Morton Arboretum is like a trip across America, China, and Europe. More than 222,000 plants are protected and showcased on the grounds—an internationally renowned outdoor tree museum located 25 miles west of Chicago in Lisle, Illinois. Throughout the year, scores of nature-focused events, activities, and educational offerings for adults, children, and professionals keep nature enthusiasts engaged and educated. In addition to 16 miles of walking trails and nine miles of roads, guests can also rent bicycles, skis, and snowshoes or grab a bite to eat at the Ginkgo Restaurant and Café. Additionally, guests can also bring children to the award-winning four-acre Children’s Garden, get lost in the one-acre hedge maze, or hike 16 miles of trails through woods and around lakes.

An extremely rare, often life-threatening condition, hereditary angioedema causes symptoms including swelling of the face, airway, and intestinal wall. It only occurs in 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 50,000 people—making awareness key to finding treatments for the disease. That's why cities across the country—and even Puerto Rico—host HAE in Motion 5K races and walks throughout the summer and fall to help fund the efforts of The US Hereditary Angioedema Association. Money raised by race participants goes toward research and the development of new drugs and therapies.
The Glo Run’s 5K fun run event always takes place at night, but it doesn’t seem like it. The course is lined with black lights and lasers, and runners sport glow-in-the-dark gear from t-shirts to sunglasses. On-course DJs add to the festivities, blasting tunes as the untimed participants run, walk, or dance to the finish line. Even more DJs await them there at the glow-in-the-dark after party, which lights up the night better than a raccoon that's swallowed a flashlight.
