The Edgewater 5k provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy everything Edgewater has to offer. Runners will gather post-race for snacks, then head to brunch at one of our local spots and return to Granville Ave. for the Edgewater Fall Art Fair featuring over 90+ artists, two stages and a beer garden.
There is no shortage to post-race brunch options in Edgewater! Stay close and dine on Granville Ave., or stretch your legs and head south to Bryn Mawr Ave. Either way, you won’t be disappointed!
The 48th Ward is home to nine elementary schools and two high schools, collectively serving more than 6,000 students. Reflecting the incredible diversity of Edgewater, kids in our local schools represent hundreds of countries around the world and speak over 75 different languages. Despite great challenges, our local schools have achieved marked success. Our schools have received the highest CPS Level 1 ratings, the National Blue Ribbon Award, expanded IB programs, and innovative arts partnerships. Funds raised by the Edgewater 5k Run/Walk will go toward providing expanded educational opportunities such as arts and sports programs.
To volunteer at Edge 5k, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Results will be available after the race.
