Get ready for the Rooney Heart 5K Fun Run & Walk

Hinsdale – The 22nd Annual 5K Rooney Heart Fun Run & Walk, sponsored by Adventist Hinsdale and Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospitals, begins at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 14 and will be held rain or shine. The 5K (3.1-mile) Fun Run & Walk goes through beautiful residential areas of Hinsdale. A special “jump rope for heart” event for children age 10 and younger will begin at 9:30 a.m.

 

What began 21 years ago as an event for cardiac rehabilitation patients has grown into a competitive race for runners of all ages. More than 500 people participated in the event last year and the number continues to grow.

 

All participants will receive a long sleeve T-shirt. Post-race activities include an awards ceremony, music and refreshments. Prizes include $150 cash awards for the best time overall for male and female categories. The top three finishers, both male and female in each age category, will be awarded prizes as well. Jump rope participants will receive goodie bags.

 

Runners who set a new course record will receive $50. The male record is 14:46 and the female record is 17:32. The race is timed using the ChampionChip system, which uses an electronic chip attached to the shoe that records the time. Results will be posted the day after the race at www.keepingyouwell.com. 

 

Fees for the event are $25 for pre-registered participants and $23 for senior citizens ages 65 and up. Race day registration takes place from 7 to 8:15 a.m. and costs $30; no discounts will be given to day-of registrants. There is no fee for the jump rope event. 

 

To register for the event, visit www.keepingyouwell.com. Save $2 by registering online by midnight Sept. 13. For more information, or to volunteer at the event, call 630-856-7555.
