Experience Fulton Market like never before at the third annual 5Kto1K Fun Run. Enjoy a scenic run through Chicago's hottest neighborhood. The course highlights what makes Fulton Market so sought after­: award-winning restaurants, historic loft-style buildings and cutting-edge creative offices. Then, celebrate with your fellow runners at our post-race party on the 1KFulton plaza.

Runners will receive a 5Kto1K performance shirt and a goodie bag, and all finishers will earn a custom 5Kto1K medal. In addition, the winner of each age division will take home a 2017 glass trophy to show off!

Net proceeds from 5Kto1K are donated to Cara, a local non-profit that provides hope, opportunity and community to individuals who need it the most.

About The Cara Program
The Cara Program was founded in 1991 by entrepreneur and philanthropist Tom Owens.

Now, more than two decades later, The Cara Program has evolved as not only a best-in-class job training and placement provider for individuals affected by homelessness and poverty, but also a vehicle for true life transformation.

Since inception, we have placed more than 4,800 individuals into more than 6,600 quality jobs at one-year job retention rates of 70% or better, catalyzing the same number of families to stop the transfer of poverty from one generation to the next. In addition, The Cara Program boasts social enterprises - including one in neighborhood beautification and the other in temporary staffing - that achieve a triple bottom line: more than $2 million in revenue annually and 250+ transitional jobs per year for the hardest to employ.
