More than 3,000 athletes from around Chicagoland gather in Beverly/Morgan Park on Memorial Day to compete in BAPA's 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.
Named one of the Runner’s Choice races by members of the Chicago Area Runner’s Association (CARA) in 2009, BAPA's Ridge Run is known as one of Chicago’s 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.

The Ridge Run’s three races start and finish at Ridge Park, 9625 S. Longwood Dr., Chicago.
