Fans joined in for the first ever Run with the Wolves Virtual 5K on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020! We brought the pack together virtually to give back to our community – all while fans had the opportunity to run on their own turf. Proceeds from every registration benefited Chicago Wolves Charities. There were two types of registrations, including an adult registration, as well as a Kids 1K registration.
It was up to fans how the wanted to race. Some walked, some ran, and some rollerbladed! They picked their favorite route, set up a mobile running application, tracked their results and submitted awesome photos to win great prizes.
This race wasn’t just for fun and to support Chicago Wolves Charities, it was an opportunity to run for a cause, a movement, a friend, the memory of a loved one or anything else that inspired fans. On the official Run with the Wolves Race Bib, which racers downloaded after registering, they wrote who or what they ran for.
