Host The Wicker Park Bucktown Virtual 5k Saturday and support local businesses

WICKER PARK – You can get outside while raising money for your favorite small businesses in Wicker Park and Bucktown this weekend.

The Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce is hosting its second annual virtual 5K on Saturday. Attendees will receive a race card and can run whenever they want, but are encouraged to run on Small Business Saturday, when businesses offer special discounts to customers, according to the event’s website.

You can register online here.

Registration is $35 per adult and $20 per child. Runners will receive a Team Wicker Park or Team Bucktown race jersey, as well as a virtual goodie bag with coupons for local stores. The names of the participants will be written on the back of the shirts as named supporters.

Proceeds will help the chamber promote local businesses during the holiday shopping season, according to organizers.
