"Oui" Run 5K Continues Support to Local Charities
     Organizers Increase Race Capacity After Selling Out in 2016
The 2017 "Oui" Run 5K  (USATF Certified Course IL16064NM) looks forward to partnering again with five local charities making a difference in Chicago. The 2016 inaugural "Oui" Run 5K exceeded expectations by selling out, drawing close to 700 runners (including 120 kids) and more than 150 volunteers! As a result of this success, the Lycée Français de Chicago donated proceeds to: Noah's Arc Foundation, After School Matters, Open Heart Magic, Ravenswood Community Services and the The Night Ministry

The 2017 "Oui" Run 5K will take place on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at 8 a.m. Mark your calendars for another festive, fun and community-based "Oui" Run! After a successful inaugural event - and after being named a CARA (Chicago Area Runners Association) Runners' Choice Circuit Race - race organizers have increased the field size to 1,500 participants. "Oui" look forward to seeing you at the start line in September! 

We had fun in 2016! Come run with us on September 24!

2017 "Oui" Run 5K presented by Wintrust named a CARA RUNNERS' CHOICE CIRCUIT RACE!
   
The CARA (Chicago Area Runners Association) Runners’ Choice Circuit has been developed to promote participation in local races, to create a competitive structure for area runners and has long been a source of camaraderie for local runners and within and between local running clubs. Runners of all levels annually participate in CARA Circuit Races to chase personal and competitive goals, to complement their year-long training programs and to enjoy the camaraderie of the CARA running community.  

The circuit includes just 15 of Chicagoland’s most well organized and well-appreciated races. Circuit races are found in both the city and suburbs and include both major world-class events and local club races alike. Circuit races are annually assembled with the input of CARA’s membership, the CARA Racing Committee, the CARA staff and CARA Board of Directors.
    
The Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA) is a non-profit organization devoted to expanding, motivating, supporting and celebrating the running community of Chicagoland.  CARA connects runners to resources that enable them to run – farther, faster, better, for life.
