Support the Local Parks System with the Sunrise Shuffle 5K
It’s that time of year again! The Sunrise Shuffle 5K is right around the corner. Join us for the sixth anniversary of this annual event, with proceeds going to help support the Bloomingdale Park District. Sponsored by Sunrise Chevrolet, your Bloomingdale area Chevy dealer, the Sunrise Shuffle will start on Saturday, September 10th at 8:30 a.m. at Johnston Recreation, marking the kick-off of the 43rd Annual Septemberfest.
Once you sign up for the 2016 Sunrise Shuffle 5K, you’ll be in for quite a day! Your race day kit includes a bib with a chip timer to track your pace and a moisture-wicking T-shirt. The top three finishers in each age group for men and women are slated to receive medals, but every participant will receive a goodie bag after crossing the finish line. The course itself consists of a mile of crushed limestone paths and two miles of asphalt. Even the kids can partake in the festivities, including the designated Kids Fun Run at 7:45 a.m. and a bounce house where they can play. There are also two younger categories and several older ones, meaning more medals for more participants!
What’s New This Year?
The biggest change for the 2016 race is that we’re on a new course this year. The Sunrise Shuffle 5K now begins and ends at the Johnston Recreation Center, traveling through Circle Park and Westlake Park along the way. For the first time ever, we’re also adding a post-race beer event, with participants being offered a beer from Church Street Brewing Company at the end of the race.
