Additional information: Arlington Trotter's use Promo code ATrotter5 for $5 off your registration.

Join us for 2nd Annual Run for Sam and salute a veteran. This is a 5k Run/Walk suitable for competitive runners but also very suitable for walkers. You can expect 10-20% of runners to be competitive, 30% will be fun runners, and approximately 50% of participants are just there to walk the course and enjoy the festivities. The 5K will be an out & back course through the scenic Busse Woods Forest Preserve. This is a beautiful course with some small inclines and features a wooded area and view of the lake. Our Sponsor, Boston Beer Company, will be sampling some great brews and beverages **FREE** to all participants 21 years of age or older.

At the end of the run, participants will receive a commemorative finishers medal (which in 2016 was an awesome bottle opener with magnet) and pint of beer of their choice. Additional beer tickets may be purchased on Its Your Race.

Because this event serves alcohol, local laws and ordinances apply. Participation is limited to those who are 21 years of age or older. A valid proof of age ID will be required to receive a wrist band that signifies an approved participant.

After you complete the race, join all participants for a post-race celebration on the zoo's Main Mall.

The race attracts nearly 6,000 participants annually and often sells out before race day.

This USATF-certified, timed race is the highlight of the Chicago running calendar. Join us for the 39th annual zoo run! Each participant receives a zoo-themed tech shirt!
