This 5K and 10K celebrates all the outrageousness that is disco. While you don’t have to don bell bottoms, platform shoes or a big wig to run the race itself, they do encourage costumes. The funkiest male and female will be given cash prizes at the post-race party. So it might be worth it to head to the thrift store and pick up some groovy tie-dye or bright colors to wear. The race begins on Thursday, June 27 at 6:30 p.m. You’ll start on Waldron Drive and race along the lakeshore with hundreds of other Chicagoans. Once you’ve crossed the finish line, get a little groovy at the post-race party. There will be food and drinks available for purchase as well as prizes to be won. In fact, you’ll even get a live performance from Village People. The YMCA alone might be worth the running. Proceeds also go to the Peapod Project to help support families who have lost a child. No matter how old you are, you can run, walk and groove all night long. So Swoop in on today’s deal and bring disco back.
