Start Time: 8:00 am

Race Start Location (may be approximate): Edward’s Place, Springfield, IL

Race back to the 19th century in the Hoopskirt and Haber-Dash. This is a 5K fun run where you can dress like you just stepped out of a haberdashery in hat and tie, or that you just made your debut in the biggest hoopskirt you can find! The course is a mostly flat course in Abraham Lincoln’s Springfield, Illinois, through Enos Park neighborhood, north through Lincoln Park, and back down again. Fun costuming is encouraged, with a prize for the best dressed of the bunch. After the run, stick around for historical activities.

Dogs are welcome at the race (not inside the museum)!

A race shirt and museum entry is included in the registration price of $30. Medals will be awarded to winners. Packet pickup is at Springfield Art Association the week of the race and on race day.

This fun run benefits Historic Edwards Place in Springfield. You can learn more about this house museum at www.edwardsplace.org.
