Race Start
This year, all participants will begin the race promptly at 7:30am. We will place runners/joggers at the front of the group, and walkers will be placed in the back.

A 20-minute mile pace or faster is required for the 5K race (approximately three miles per hour, equivalent to a brisk walk). If you fall below this pace, the South Holland Fun Run race organizers cannot guarantee course support, as road closures, water stations, and medical support will begin to become unavailable to participants. The local police and race organizers will ask you to either move up onto the sidewalk or require you to be transported further up on course to catch up to the 15-minute per mile group.

Medical
Medical support will be provided at the finish line, as well as long the course as needed.

Prizes & Race Medals
All participants will receive a finisher’s medal at the designated station. Age division winners (1st, 2nd, and 3rd place – male and female) will receive a medal. Top finishers in each race will receive a monetary prize.

Medal Ceremony brings at approximately 8:30 a.m.

Age Divisions: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+
