Huntley Fall Fest 5K & Kids Dash

Join us as we resurrect the 5K as part of the annual Huntley Fall Fest! This will be the first annual Huntley Fall Fest Presented by Kopf Running! The race will benefit Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK), an organization committed to mobilizing school professionals, families and communities to take actions that lead to healthy eating, physical activity and healthier schools where kids thrive. We have a personal connection to the organization, as we raise funds every year for AFHK while training for the Chicago Marathon! At the event, we are collecting monetary donations for the AFHK (proceeds from entry fees also go to the organization)!
