From downtown Highwood, up along the lake shore and through historic Ft. Sheridan, the North Shore Taco Run 5K will be a run to remember. Grab a friend, grab your kids, grab your parents who even at 70+ can still outlast you on the course, and come join the fun. 

When you've completed the race, walk right over to the North Shore Taco Festival grounds, listen to some live music and grab your complimentary taco and for participants 21 and older, a complimentary beer or margarita!! For more information visit Highwood Days & North Shore Taco Fest
