Lincoln-Way East Music Boosters to host Miles for Music 5K/10K racesThursday, March 1, 2018
The Lincoln-Way East Music Boosters will host a “Miles for Music” 5K/10K run on Sunday, April 8, 2018. The race will take place along Old Plank Road Trail and offers a 5K run/walk option, or a 10K run. This race is a benefit race for the Music Department at Lincoln Way East High School.
“Miles for Music is a perfect event for the Chicago south suburban running community to get a 10K training run or to have fun with the whole family at the 5K…It is a great opportunity to support the East music program and to get in shape,” says Lincoln-Way East Music Department Chair, Dr. Bert Johnson.
Pre-race registration will take place from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. on the day of the event. Participants who need to pick up a packet should arrive early. The 10K run will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the 5K run/walk will begin at 9:40. Results will be tabulated and an awards ceremony will take place after the races are complete, around 11:00 a.m. Awards will be presented to the top three males and females in each age group.
Online registration is available at www.lwemusicboosters.org/milesformusic.html. Prices to participate are dependent on length of race, age of participant, and time of registration. Spirit wear for the event will also be sold on the website, including T-shirts, long sleeved shirts, crewnecks and hoodies.
