About the Event – 22nd Annual!
Join us in historic Geneva for a fun filled family night of racing. The evening schedule:
6:15 p.m — Jamie LaForce Youth Mile
6:30 p.m. — Junior Jog
6:45 p.m. — Toddler Trot, to allow children to race and have refreshments at an earlier hour.
7:05 p.m. — Summer Sunset 5K
All races are held in or around the school athletic stadium.
Proceeds from this event go towards the FRTR Youth Scholarship Fund.
Note, many have told us they would rather pay less and don’t need another shirt taking space in their closet, so race shirts are not included in the registration fee. You have the option to purchase a shirt separately on the registration site until July 8th.
Location and Directions
Geneva Community High School Athletic Complex
799 Gray St.
Geneva, Illinois 60134
MAP TO THE START
Please note, due to road construction around the high school, we had to change the course for this year’s event.
This year, the 5K course starts on Logan Avenue by the sport fields and winds through neighborhood streets. All mile splits will be timed with race clocks, and a water station just past halfway. One thing has not changed: you will finish with a lap around the track in front of your friends and family as they watch from the bleachers!

Baby joggers or strollers are permitted but participants utilizing those will need to start in the back of entire field. This is for the safety of all participants. Also for safety reasons, the use of headphones or other electronic devices during the race is STRONGLY discouraged.
Awards to the top overall male and female winners as well as top three age group awards in the following age groups. 00-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 plus.
Youth Mile (Age 12 and under)
Our flat and fast Youth Mile will take off at 6:15 p.m. starting & finishing on the track. All runners will receive a finisher medal.
