Description

_ The 2018 Dim Sum & Then Some: The Uptown 5K:

Join the Chinese Mutual Aid Association (CMAA) this June for the first ever “Dim Sum & Then Some: The Uptown 5k!”  This isn’t your typical run, get a shirt, and go home type of race. The Dim Sum & Then Some is Uptown’s 5k and Chicago’s only race where runners are treated with Dim Sum after the run! 

Swarms of runners will descend upon one of Chicago’s most ethnically diverse neighborhoods-Uptown.  Renowned for its historical theaters, unique music scene and Asian influence, runners will enjoy a fun route that not only highlights the neighborhood but also Chicago’s scenic lakefront path. 

And what better way to cap off a run through Uptown than by eating some Dim Sum?!  Each runner will be given their own Dim Sum box compliments of one of Uptown's famous restaurants, Furama.  Additional free goodies will be given on race day!

2018 Race Highlights:

Each timed runner will receive a dri-fit technical running shirt

The Dim Sum & Then Some is the only 5k race that runs through the neighborhood of Uptown

Runners will be cheered on with entertainment throughout the race course, including CMAA’s Lion dancers

Every registered runner will receive a dim sum box compliments of Furama restaurant (Dim Sum items subject to change)

Other free goodies courtesy of local Uptown businesses
