The Hard Cider Run: Chicago

Sat June 16, 2018 Directions
Jonamac Orchard (NW suburbs near DeKalb)
19412 Shabbona Rd.
Malta, IL 60150

What started off as a fun idea to celebrate Jonamac Orchard's hard cider has turned into an annual event that welcomes spring! Dash through the orchard in pursuit of a yummy glass of hard cider! All participants of The Hard Cider Run will enjoy a picturesque 5K run or walk before enjoying a complimentary glass of the good stuff. After, stick around and enjoy a great afternoon at the cidery!

Feeling adventurous and, um, hungry? Add on The Hungry Apple option when signing up! We'll have donut stations at every mile-marker for you to enjoy a scrumptious treat. After you cross the finish line, you'll receive the standard finisher's medal as well as the exclusive Hungry Apple medal!

Be sure to invite friends and create a team of 4+, as each team member will save $5. Cider, springtime, and friends. Does it get any better? 

Packet pick-up is available the day before the race as well as on race morning. Details will be announced this winter.
