The District 27 Council PTA 5K Run /Walk -- 1 Mile Run -- Kids’ Dash is a family and community event to promote fitness for all age groups!  The 5K course and the 1 Mile course are USATF certified and the race will be professionally timed. Not only are we using chip timing again this year, we have also simplified our 5K course to one loop AND we are keeping the Kids' 1 Mile race entirely in the park! The Kids’ Dash will feature a warm up exercise session, an exciting 100 yard dash and obstacle course.

This event will raise money for the Rohrabaugh Scholarship Fund. The Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to Glenbrook North seniors who are outstanding graduates of Wood Oaks Jr. High School.

Course Description


The 5K course has been updated this year to consist of one loop only.

The start and finish will be in Wood Oaks Park on the path directly north of the school parking lot.

The course heads south out of the park passing the school fields and turning east onto Walters before turning south onto Lori-Lyn Lane. It then heads north on Terri-Lyn Lane and back into Wood Oaks Green Park. The course loops around the park pathways over to the Yorkshire Lane neighborhood north of the park. After turning onto Yorkshire, participants will go around Pony and Pinto Lanes, then continue on to circle Bristol Court before coming back on Yorkshire and re-entering the park. The finish line is located on the same park path as the start, closest to Wood Oaks Jr. High.

The 1 Mile course consists of one loop. This year, the 1 Mile course will both start and finish on the same park path as the 5K. It will not at any point exit the park.

Both of our new 5K and 1 Mile courses are USATF certified.

The Kids' Fun Run includes a fun and friendly warm up session, 100 yard and obstacle course for our younger runners.
