SAVE THE DATE! Sunday May 19th, 2019 @ 8:00am


The Run for 102 and 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 102 / Run for the Roses benefits the PTO/PTCs of the six schools in District 102: Barnsdale Road School, Congress Park Elementary School, Cossitt Avenue Elementary School, Forest Road Elementary School, Ogden Avenue Elementary School and Park Junior High. These non-profit PTO/PTC's work with teachers and staff and enrich the experience of all District 102 students by supporting both curricular and non-curricular projects in addition to organizing student and family activities.
