The Highwood Superhero 5K Run/Walk takes place during the Great Highwood Pumpkin Fest. Come dressed as a superhero like Superman, Ant-Man, Batman, Spiderman or whoever your superhero is! Your superhero may be your mom, dad or a friend who went above and beyond the call of duty. ALL proceeds go to benefit Make-A-Wish Illinois. Our goal during the event is to raise enough funds to help grant many WISHES!
The course starts in front of the famous Bent Fork Bakery in downtown Highwood and guides you along the beautiful lake front trail and through historic Fort Sheridan and then back again. You will run by thousands of carved jack-o-lanterns which will be lit later that evening. A sight not to be missed.
SPECIAL OFFERS: Along with a t-shirt, all runners will receive a complimentary beverage at the end of the race. For those 21 and over, you can choose a Bloody Mary or beer.
Midtown Athletic Club would like to invite our runners/walkers to participate in special offers. You will be contacted for details.
