On your marks…get set…GO!!!...to the 7th Annual Elim Eagles’ Wings 5K Run, Walk, & Roll! Join us on the grounds of Elim Christian Services in Palos Heights, Illinois, to lace up your running or walking shoes and stride for the finish line on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 9:00 am.
Participants may choose between the timed 5K course and the untimed 1-mile short loop course, both of which begin and end on Elim’s Palos Heights campus. Registered runners will receive official times for the 5K.

All registered participants will receive a free T-shirt and will also enjoy music, refreshments, and raffle drawings. Kids will even have the opportunity to partake in a free pre-race obstacle course. In addition, each year’s 5K event has a theme, and costumes are welcome! (theme to be announced soon)
