2020 Lions “Run for Hope” 5K

As of this time , all indications from local officials are that we will be able to hold this event as planned on Sunday, Sept. 27th. This pandemic has had a impact on all us as well as the two charities that this race supports.

We thank everyone for your continued support of our run and hope to see you again this year. This year we are offering two options of participation. Join us for our 5K run/walk in person or participate virtually.

A virtual run/walk, is a real run/walk but on your terms: You choose the course and when you start. You may complete a 5k run/walk or participate any way that moves you.

Our number one goal is everyone’s safety. If the state guidelines change, any of the listed procedures are subject to change without notice. We have safety precautions in place to protect you and our many volunteers.

We will be starting the walkers a few minutes after the runners to help with social distancing. For all those who are concerned about their times, this is a chip-timed event so your start time is when you cross the timing pad.

Overall Awards will be handed out at the  event.
Age group awards may be shifted to pickup at the Stickney-Forest View Public Library at a later date during the week.
