Joliet Junior College will host its 4th Annual JJC Foundation 5K Run and Walk on Saturday, May 5, to raise money for student scholarships.
The race starts at 9:30 a.m., with registration opening at 7:30 a.m. The course is a certified flat loop pavement course, primarily on JJC’s Main Campus, 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet. A new feature this year is a one-mile kids’ race for ages 12 and under that begins at 9 a.m.
A $100 cash award will be given to the top overall male and female winner and the top three winners in each age/gender category will receive a medal.
The entry fee for the 5K is $25 through April 26 and $30 after that date. The kids’ race fee is $7 through race day. Those interested can register online at www.jjc.edu/info/5K
Last year’s event raised $25,000 to benefit JJC students.
