Join us on Saturday, May 18 for Your Cougars 8th Annual 5K Run/Walk

Held at Northwestern Medicine Field, the Cougars 5K Run/Walk is a unique event for competitive runners and families looking to enjoy a memorable morning at the ballpark. Runners, walker, families with strollers...all are welcome! There's no better way to end a race than right at home plate. Participants will receive a high-five from Ozzie and Annie during the final turn while getting a look at themselves on the video board as they cross the finish line. 

Children up to the age of 12 can participate in the Inside the Park Dash, a roughly half-mile fun run for only $10. This year all registered Inside the Park Dash participants will receive a youth side t-shirt! Ozzie and Annie will also be waiting for them at home plate to hand out high-fives. 

Register by May 8 to GUARANTEE yourself a race t-shirt.

Following the race, all participants will enjoy a complimentary brat or hot dog and beer for those 21 and older. Additional post-race snacks will be provided. 

Proceeds from this year's race will benefit the many charitable programs of the Kane County Cougars Baseball Foundation, Inc. 

Age Groups and Award Categories: The overall male and female finishers will be awarded trophies. The top three male and female finishers in the following age groups will receive medals: 12 and under, 13-15, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+
