Join us for this 4th annual race benefiting the Muscular Dystrophy Association in honor of our friend, Henry Betts! We are collecting monetary donations for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (proceeds from entry fees also go to MDA) and non-perishable food items for the Algonquin Lake in the Hills Interfaith Food Pantry! This year's race will feature pre- and post-race festivities INDOORS at Marlowe Middle School! Before and after the race you can enjoy music, food, and drinks without shivering!

Please see below for the time ranges that we need volunteers and choose one that works with your schedule. You can always change your desired position by emailing Karen at karenlkopf@gmail.com. Participants will be arriving anytime after 6:30am to receive their bib, t-shirt, and packet, and the race begins at 8:00am for the 5K. The Kids Dash begins at 8:45am. We expect the post-race party to last no later than 11:00am
