Disco Dash 5k or 10k - Soldier Field (youswoop deal)

3rd Annual Disco Dash 5k/10k
Thursday, June 27th
Soldier Field - race starts at 6:30pm

Here's the info about this race:

This 5K and 10K celebrates all the outrageousness that is disco. While you don’t have to don bell bottoms, platform shoes or a big wig to run the race itself, they do encourage costumes. The funkiest male and female will be given cash prizes at the post-race party. So it might be worth it to head to the thrift store and pick up some groovy tie-dye or bright colors to wear. The race begins on Thursday, June 27 at 6:30 p.m. You’ll start on Waldron Drive and race along the lakeshore with hundreds of other Chicagoans. Once you’ve crossed the finish line, get a little groovy at the post-race party. There will be food and drinks available for purchase as well as prizes to be won. In fact, you’ll even get a live performance from Village People. The YMCA alone might be worth the running. Proceeds also go to the Peapod Project to help support families who have lost a child. No matter how old you are, you can run, walk and groove all night long. So Swoop in on today’s deal and bring disco back.

I've already registered for the 5k race and will start looking for my afro to bring with me ot this event.

I'll set a place/time to meet beforehand so we could all do some pre-dancing/running warm-ups before the race.

    Hey all - If you're up for meeting beforehand, I'll be at the legs statues on Michigan Ave./11th street until 6pm and will make my way over to Soldier field to the start line. There is another meetup group that will be attending as well. Look forward to seeing you all there. Cheers-Sue C.

      I don't see why not...although I'm not sure how security check in will be. You may have to register to run the race either online or in person.
