Join us for the 1st chapter in a new and fun neighborhood event! Runners will assemble inside the MLK Community Center at 40th and Illinois prior to the kickoff of the run at 9:30 a.m. The run will touch all parts of the neighborhood, heading out from the MLK Center down 40th Street till it dead ends at Crown Hill Cemetery at Clarendon Road. From there, they will head north up Clarendon and enter the campus at Butler University. The route will take runners by some of Butler’s iconic buildings such as the Atherton Union and the Observatory, where runners will head up Lake Road toward Hinkle Fieldhouse. Runners will follow 49th Street before hitting Illinois Street, where they will head south and back toward the Center. Upon arriving back at the MLK Center, runners and their supporters will be invited inside for some water, hot cocoa, and other snacks.
