As we are seeing all across the world, COVID-19 affects everyone. Unfortunately, that includes the Family YMCA of N/W IL's Spring Chicken 5K.

We have decided to change the race date to September 12, 2020.  We will still be part of the Freeport Run All 5 Race's.

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the September 12, 2020  event date, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time. We will refund the race fee but not the transaction fee.
