The Superhero 5K Family Fun Run, Walk & Stroll takes place during the Great Highwood Pumpkin Fest. Come dressed as your favorite superhero like Superman, Ant-Man, Batman, Spiderman or whoever your superhero is!  Your superhero may be your mom, dad or a friend who went above and beyond the call of duty. ALL proceeds go to benefit Highland Park Community Foundation.

The course starts and ends at the intersection of Sheridan Road and Walker Avenue in downtown Highwood, just north of the famous Bent Fork Bakery, and guides you along the beautiful lake front trail and through historic Fort Sheridan and then back again. You will run by thousands of carved jack-o-lanterns which will be lit later that evening. A sight not to be missed. 

SPECIAL OFFERS: Along with a t-shirt, all runners will receive a complimentary beverage at the end of the race. For those 21 and over, you can choose a Bloody Mary or beer. 

The Superhero 5K Family Fun Run, Walk and Stroll is stroller, bike, scooter, wagon and pet friendly! Special route for walkers.

A special thanks to our Superhero 5K Family Fun Run, Walk & Stroll sponsors: Gearhead Outfitters and Windy City Dispensary.
