Join us for our 3rd ANNUAL NSA Chicago 5K!!
This 5K (3.1 mile) Family Fun Run/Walk is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to get outside and get moving, all for the benefit of people who stutter and the National Stuttering Association!!  Whether you’re racing to get that PR, or just want a fun, easy run/walk with others in the community, we invite you to join us!

*5K Early Bird Registration (until 3/15): $25
*5K Registration (until 4/24): $30
*5K On-Site Registration on race day: $35

Not local to the Chicago/Evanston area?  You can still participate and support the National Stuttering Association!

This race offers the opportunity to register as a virtual runner, meaning you can complete the run/walk in your own area.  Simply select 'virtual runner' at checkout.  You will still receive the race t-shirt, and your registration will still go to the NSA, just as if you were on the ground with us in person.  There is no proof of completion required, simply sign up, lace up those shoes, and hit the ground in your own neighborhood, at your own pace.

Not a runner?  Try completing the 5K while walking, hiking, biking, swimming, jumping rope, or dancing.  Most importantly, this is an opportunity to have fun and support people who stutter and the NSA!

The DEADLINE to register as a VIRTUAL runner is April 24th, so don't miss out!!
*Virtual Runner registration: $35 (includes shipping & handling)
