North-side VS South-side…Who are you rooting and racing for?

The Chi-Town Showdown is a USATF-certified 5K course and transponder-timed run and fun walk followed by kids dashes, refreshments, entertainment and an awards ceremony. Split times and markers, and water stations will be along the course. Come early for the pre-race festivities. Get ready to run or walk with our pre-race warmup and then a short presentation about the Mokena Community Park District Foundation’s Showdown Scholarship. A portion of the event proceeds will be designated for the scholarship which will go to a child in the community to fund their participation in a Park District athletic program or one of our affiliate’s athletic programs.

After the race, participants are encouraged to stay and enjoy the post-race refreshments, food and awards while visiting with friends and fellow runners. Race results are based on gun time and will be available at or
