Race Description

The “Bunny Wabbit Run” is a 5k (one hop), 10k (two hops) & 15k (three hops) race, a 200m Kid’s Dash with the silly Wabbit and an Easter Egg Hunt for children ages 8 and under all in 1!

Our scenic course features a few rolling hills which winds its way through the open prairies and lush green forests of the Des Plaines River (DPR) and Casey Trails in the springtime. If you’re lucky (and fast enough) you might even catch the Easter Bunny with his prized Golden Egg…if you’re lucky. Catch him-get a FREE race entry next year.

What’s more-just by the race start in Independence Grove Forest Preserves is an awesome kid’s playground, a huge picnic area and a man-made beach. So, come on out and bring the whole family for some fun this coming spring of 2016!
