About this Race
Come join the 5K run and one-mile run/walk along the tree lined streets of Historic Springfield where modern Jacksonville put down roots in 1869. Running through this picturesque neighborhood past Victorian, Prairie and Colonial homes will be a delightful way to celebrate the end of summer. Warm up before the run with Linton Mclain with Superior Sculpting!
Visit noteworthy houses; stop by the historic fire station; visit the new Springfield businesses on Main Street. Spend the morning, or make a day of it after the run-walk events, exploring a timeless neighborhood where modern Jacksonville began. You can sign-up on-line, or on race-day, to run by yourself, with friends or as part of a company, neighborhood or a large team.
The Jacksonville Urban League is very excited about the partnership with Wells Fargo, SPAR and local Springfield residents and business owners. The post-race celebration will be held at Hyperion Brewery Company’s “Heilos Beer Gardens” where awards will be given and raffle items to your favorite Springfield restaurants and stores.
