The Ridge Run Offers Races for All Competition Levels

Eventbrite - 37th Annual Ridge Run

More than 3,500 athletes from around Chicagoland gather in Beverly/Morgan Park on Memorial Day to compete in the annual Ridge Run. The 10K run, 5K run/walk and Youth Mile are hosted by the Beverly Area Planning Association with Little Company of Mary Hospital and Health Care Centers in Evergreen Park the presenting sponsor of the race.
 
With cash prizes awarded to the top finishers, the Ridge Run is one of Chicagoís favorite neighborhood races, attracting elite runners as well as neighborhood families. Start times are 8 a.m. for the 10K run, 8:10 a.m. for the youth mile for 6 to 12 year-olds, and 9:30 a.m. for the 5K run/walk. The Ridge Runís three races start and finish at Ridge Park, 9625 S. Longwood Dr., Chicago.
 
Named one of the Runnerís Choice races by members of the Chicago Area Runnerís Association (CARA) in 2009, the Ridge Run is known as one of Chicagoís friendliest races because thousands of Beverly/Morgan Park neighbors line the route, playing motivating music, cheering on the runners and offering water throughout the course.
