The Race to Wrigley 5K begins at 8 a.m. CDT. Runners will race through the Lakeview neighborhood before entering the Wrigley Field concourse and crossing the finish line just steps away from the Wrigley Field Marquee. The ballpark route features historic memorabilia and the opportunity to run through the Friendly Confines.
Runners will receive a 2019 special edition finisher’s medal, a Cubs performance race shirt and a complimentary post-race photo. Participants also will receive an ATI Physical Therapy drawstring bag and one beverage (Budweiser or Bud Light) courtesy of Anheuser-Busch.
Proceeds from the race will benefit Cubs Charities’ Diamond Project, which aims to expand baseball and softball opportunities for all Chicago children and youth by engaging kids with skilled coaches, delivering quality programming and providing safe and accessible places to play the game.
Cubs Charities will donate proceeds from all personal fundraising to support Advocate Health Care’s pediatric cancer programs. The top fundraising team and top overall fundraiser will receive tickets and special recognition during a pregame ceremony at a Cubs home game to be determined in the 2019 season. The first 50 fundraisers to raise a minimum of $500 will receive a baseball autographed by a current Cubs player.
ATI Physical Therapy, the Official Physical Therapy Provider of the Chicago Cubs, will once again have a post-race recovery tent and lead the group in a pre-race stretch.
The registration fee for the 5K run is $39 and $25 for the Youth 5K. Registration prices will increase closer to race day. Registrants will receive details about packet pickup closer to the event.
