Many of us have experienced the passing of someone close to us or have family/friends that are not able to be with us. The Wish You Were Here 5K gives you the opportunity to honor that person as you participate in this special night run/walk.

Stadium Sprint distance - 3+ miles & 20-23 Obstacles

Welcome to Toyota Park, Spartans! For the first time, Spartans will run through the home of the Chicago Fire Soccer Club, a Major League Soccer team and the Chicago Red Stars, a National Womens Soccer League team.

Located 12 miles southwest of Chicago, this 469,000-square-foot soccer-specific stadium calls the Chicago Southland home and seats 20,000 people. TOYOTA PARK is the heart of soccer for much of the Midwest and a must-see destination for world-class concerts and other sporting events. Each year, more than a half million people go by the stadium's trademark brick arch.

This year, help us bring the Spartan finish arch to TOYOTA PARK!

By buying this ticket, you are purchasing an official Lets Do This pass to use with Spartan. You will receive final instructions on how to register for your chosen event in your confirmation email.
Please note - there will be a $14 additional charge for insurance, as well as a processing fee (10% of registration) once you have applied your code at the Spartan Checkout. The prices given on Let's Do This are equal to the total amount you will end up paying.

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). We go above and beyond with our fully stocked aid stations and have an amazing group of volunteers ready to help you in any way. You will also receive personalized attention from the race organizers before, during, and after the race.

Our races start on a Friday evening and include a Santa Fun Run to kick it off at 7:30pm, followed by the 5K at 8pm, then the 6-Hour, 12-Hour, 24-Hour Fixed Time Solo and Relay Endurance Runs following at Midnight, 11pm, and 10pm, respectively. Last year, we sold out our 2,3,4-person relay division, so we decided to add a 4,5,6-person 12-Hour relay, and a 4,6,8-person 24-Hour Relay divisions for 2019.

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!

Warrior Dash is the obstacle course race that anyone can start and everyone can finish. With over two million participants worldwide since 2009, weve reinvented the concept of a 5k run and created a revolution: Warrior Nation. Whether youre an elite athlete or just beginning the challenge, youll conquer 12 world-class obstacles like Goliath and Great Warrior Wall, wade across wooded lakes, and venture through mud-caked backroads as you make your loop to the finish line. Youll be rewarded with a finisher medal, a sweet t-shirt, fuzzy Warrior helmet, and ice cold beer. Head to the post-race party to relive the course with friends, dance to live music, and celebrate your decision to leave your normal weekend in the mud.

Since 2009, this is the get-dirty race anyone can start and everyone can finish. And once youre done, get ready to party at a festival with a live DJ, great beer, activities and sponsors and the best people watching ever.
