Come experience Allerton After Dark and see the park in a whole new light! The race starts and finishes near the Visitor Center at Allerton Park. Bring a flashlight or headlamp.
You’ll follow illuminated trail markings under a waxing crescent moon (we checked), accumulating extra glow as you go. You’ll also pass right through the nighttime magic of the Sunken Garden, Chinese Musicians, Rodin’s Adam, and more, as you make your way to a finish area full of surprises, s’mores and music!
This race is also a celebration of Saturday’s race volunteers (who can run the 5K for free), and the perfect night-before warmup for all running enthusiasts. Runners must bring their own headlamp, armlight, or flashlight. Walkers welcome (and we’ll save some s’mores).
PACKET PICKUP (FOR ALL RACES) AVAILABLE AT THE VISITOR CENTER FROM 7-8:15PM FRIDAY. No Bandits! 5K will include race numbers. All proceeds go to Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois.
