What’s the Scoop?
Join the Chicago Reach 5k team for the first annual My Block My Hood My City Community Run!
This 5K run takes place around the beautiful Marquette Park. Known for its 9-hole golf course, soccer fields, and summer barbecues, Marquette also has a rich history of activism. Most notably the civil rights marches of 1966, where Martin Luther King Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference protested housing discrimination in Chicago. Race day includes live music, a history hunt, and prizes for top runners and top fundraising teams.
