JOLIET — Joliet Junior College will host its 5th Annual JJC Foundation 5K Run and Walk on Saturday, May 4, to raise money for student scholarships.
The race starts at 9 a.m., with registration opening at 7 a.m.
The course is a certified flat loop pavement course, primarily on JJC’s Main Campus, 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet.
A new feature this year is a one-mile kids’ race for ages 12 and under that begins at 8:30 a.m. A $100 cash award will be given to the top overall male and female winner and the top three winners in each age/gender category will receive a medal.
The entry fee for the 5K is $25 through April 26 and $30 after that date. The kids’ race fee is $7 through race day. Those interested can register online at jjc.edu/info/5K.
Last year’s event raised $35,000 to benefit JJC students.
