Jefferson Family Glo Run 2021

(Friday, October 15th): Join us for this FREE family event on Friday, October 15th from 6-7:30pm. The event was originally to be held at Butterfield Park but will now be held at Jefferson School, due to a scheduling conflict with the park district. Meet at 6pm at the picnic tables by the gardens at Jefferson. Please register to ensure your family receives a glo run packet (includes race bibs and glo sticks for all registered family members). This will be a 1 mile family fun run; however, families will have the option to run additional laps if they wish. Note: Glo paint will not be provided this year. You are welcome to decorate yourself with your own glo paint at home if you wish! OPTIONAL - purchase a neon "Tiger Fun Run" t-shirt for the kids! T-Shirt orders close at midnight on October 2nd; however, race registration will remain open until October 10th. Please register here.
