We've gone virtual for 2020!
Currently registered participants can complete the race by 7/29 and receive a custom Finisher's Medal and Shirt!

It's with a heavy heart that we announce that we will be unable to hold the April Fools 5k in-person during 2020.  At the start of the pandemic, we already had 290 people registered to run with us and it puts us above all limits set by the State of Illinois until we are in Phase 5 of recovery due to COVID-19.  Since our race is so early in the season, the prospect of us being able to hold a live event in 2021 is slim as well.  Because of this, we are no longer offering a deferral option for people already registered for the run.  Instead, we have converted the race to a virtual run and brought back the popular finisher's medal for everyone -- even the kids!
