On the last day of the Illinois State Fair in August each year, hundreds of runners take it to the streets covering the fairgrounds, Lincoln Park, Oak Ridge Cemetery, and back. This challenging 10K course is USATF certified and a lot of fun! Abe's Amble also includes a 5K option in addition to the longstanding 10K distance. The 10K will begin at 7:30 a.m. and the 5K will follow at 7:35 a.m. The 5K route will begin and end at the fairgrounds (same as the 10K); however the 5K route will continue west on Sangamon Avenue, turn right on 1st Street to a turnaround spot and return to the fairgrounds.
