_ The 2018 Parkie's Famous 5K/10K and Kid's Fun Dash:


There are so many NEW aspects to this race that we’re excited to bring you! We will still have the flat, fast course that you’ve loved about previous years races, but we’ve stepped up our game in the party department. To keep with the feel of our community race, we’ve partnered with Famous Dave’s in Bolingbrook (located at 704 Janes Ave.) to bring you the ultimate in race experiences. You want food? You got it! All runners will receive a BBQ sandwich and two sides, along with a free bottle of Famous Dave’s BBQ sauce. You want more? We got that too! Check out what’s new in this year’s Parkie’s Famous 5K/10K.

• Kid’s Fun Dash! We have a new race for runners age 10 years and younger! All racers will get their very own cape.
• Feast at the Finish Line! All racers get a BBQ sandwich and two sides provided by Famous Dave’s.
• New shirt! We went for ultra-comfort this year with a super-soft race t-shirt!
• Sauces for Troops: Famous Dave’s will be sending bottles of BBQ sauce to our troops overseas. For a $1 donation you can write a message on a bottle of BBQ sauce. Make your donation during registration or on race day.
