For 35 consecutive years, the Oak Park Runner’s Club (OPRC) has hosted the Good Life Race, one of the most prestigious 5K race events in the Chicago area. The Race is a family friendly event that draws runners and walkers of all ages from the Oak Park – River Forest area and beyond. The Good Life Race has been awarded “Best Race in the Chicago Region” for four of the last five years.
The Good Life Race is also unique in that it boasts separate 5K races for men and women in addition to several additional family-oriented events. Last year, this popular community event brought out over 2,000 people to participate in the 5K races, the Youth Mile Race, Mother/Daughter and Father/Son competitions, 5K fitness walk, Health Fair and Junior Dash.
The Good Life Race will be donating its proceeds to the Collaboration for Early Childhood and the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry. After the 2016 race, the Good Life Race was proud to donate $17,500 to the Collaboration for Early Childhood. Help us top this amount in 2017!
