For 2019 the Run for 102 and the Run for the Roses are joining together for one amazing community event. Sprinters, joggers, walkers...students, neighbors, friends - it's the race for everyone!  

The race will take place on Sunday, May 19th, 2019 starting and finishing from Forest Road School in La Grange Park. The event offers a 5K at 8:00am as well as a 1-mile event (for those under age 14) at 9:00am. A post-race party follows at 9:15am and includes food, drinks, raffles, games and vendor booths as well as an awards ceremony presenting medals to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in both the 5K and 1 mile in multiple age group categories.

The Run for the Roses benefits the La Grange Park Community. The Run for 102 benefits the six schools in District 102's PTO/PTCs, which supports both curricular and non-curricular projects in addition to organizing student and family activities. These District 102 schools include: Barnsdale Road School, Congress Park Elementary School, Cossitt Avenue Elementary School, Forest Road Elementary School, Ogden Avenue Elementary School and Park Junior High.
