Beginner Friendly Running Events in Michigan
We would like to welcome you to the 6th Annual Christmas in July Races, which we like to call the longest summer holiday running party in the country.
Our venue is festively decorated with christmas lights, inflatables, and more and takes place in beautiful Lisle Community Park in Lisle, IL (Just 25 miles outside of Downtown Chicago, IL and easy to get to).
This is a great venue for the entire family. The kids get to run with Santa Claus and receive medals and t-shirts for their participation. Each participant receives awesome swag at the door and top notch finisher medals upon completion. We also hand out unique holiday Nutcrackers as finisher awards. We also have a costume contest for the 5K and fixed-timed events, so if you like, come prepared for that so our amazing volunteers can pick the winners.
If youre running one of our timed events, youre able to camp alongside the trail. Last year, we had 84 camping tents on the grounds and its growing every year. Most decorate their space with holiday decorations, some even bring projection TVs to entertain the kids overnight. Its a blast!
If you have any questions, at all, please contact the race staff at [email protected] and well be happy to answer any of your questions. We look forward to see you in 2019!
