The Joliet Junior College Foundation and Athletics Department are proud to host the fourth annual Haunted 5K Run and Walk on Sunday, October 22, 2017 on the Main Campus. All ages are invited to attend; in addition to the 5K, there will be a one-mile race for children under 12.
The 2016 JJC Haunted 5K Run and Walk saw record numbers of runners with nearly 430 participants. This is a great 5K for competitive runners, but it also provides a healthy, fun activity for the whole family all while supporting JJC students.
The 2016 race helped raise $40,000 for student scholarships, college programs and athletics. With nearly 430 participants, more than 50 volunteers and dozens of fans to cheer on the runners and walkers, it was a fun-filled morning for all involved, complete with perfect weather.
Participants are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes in this themed race. After the race, runners and their families are encouraged to stay for kid activities, face painting, candy and more.
