Enjoy a summer evening with a 5K flat and fast run. Follow that up with a beer/beverage music and fireworks (9:30 p.m.) Awards will be on the main stage at roughly 8:00 p.m.
Located at the west end of Sunset Park in Lake in the Hills, you'll be on an asphalt bike path for a majority of the race. Parking will be close and a great view of the fireworks from that area.
The original Sunset 5K was offered from 2000-2016 on the Friday of Labor Day. We moved the race to accommodate the fireworks for all.
The funds for the run will benefit the People for Parks Foundation of Lake in the Hills, Inc. The goal is to raise funds to cover those residents who want to participate in programs and who may not have the financial means. Additionally, we've purchased equipment such as a 15 passenger van, preschool table and chairs, benches for the parks, and play equipment.
