Join us June 2 for our 29th Annual Run for the Roses! We are also excited to share that this race is back on the CARA circuit for 2024! Register now!
The certified 5k course is USATF measured and approved (Course Certification number is IL11120JW).
The course is flat and fast, and a lot of locals’ favorites! The race is run in an oblong loop on the streets of Roselle. The race starts and ends at Lake Park High School West Campus. There is one water station at the 1.62 mile mark. The course is clearly marked with volunteers directing the way. Following the 5K race, there is a 0.6K Youth Run (1/3 mile)!
Registration for the 5K is $35, and family rates are available. The kids race is $10.
The 2023 Run for the Roses was a great race with beautiful weather! Thank you to everyone who came out. This race has been in existence for almost three decades, and Xtra Mile Running is proud to host the event for the 5th year in a row and is excited for the years to come.
