CHICAGO – Cubs Charities will host the 13th Annual Race to Wrigley 5K Charity Run presented by ATI Physical Therapy Sunday, May 6. Registration for the race is open now through Tuesday, May 1, at 11:59 p.m. CDT. To register, runners can visit www.racetowrigley.com.

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 ending 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 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, Bud Light or Pepsi product) courtesy of Anheuser-Busch and Pepsi.

Proceeds from the race will benefit Cubs Charities, which provides increased access to sports opportunities and targets improvements in health, fitness and education for those at risk. Cubs Charities will donate proceeds from all personal fundraising to support pediatric cancer programs through Advocate Health Care. 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 2018 season. The first 100 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 the Youth 5K is $25. Registration prices will increase closer to race day. Registrants will receive details about packet pick-up closer to the event.
