The Food Truck Rally and Sunset 5K features more than a dozen popular Chicago and DuPage mobile eateries that will be open from 2 to 7:30 p.m. In addition, a Kid Zone will host activities for the whole family from noon to 5 p.m., including a variety of games, face painting and Touch-A-Truck, where emergency vehicles, grounds equipment and semi-tractor trailers will be on hand for children to explore.
The 100-Yard Youth Dash begins at 4 p.m. on the football stadium track with three divisions -- ages 4 to 5, 6 to 7, and 8 to 9. The Sunset 5K will begin at 5 p.m. and features a CARA- and USATF-certified course.
Sunset 5K awards include a $200 Visa gift card for the Top Overall male and female racers and the "Middle of the Pack" winner, with all 5K participants receiving a finisher medal and eligible to win an iPad.
Race participants can register individually or as a team. Prizes are awarded for the fastest team and the "Luck of the Draw." All 5K race participants receive a short-sleeved technical T-shirt in a drawstring backpack.
All proceeds from this event will benefit COD Student Scholarships. Each high school district served by College of DuPage will have a dedicated scholarship for their graduates who attend COD. At the time of 5K or Youth Dash registration, participants can designate the district that will receive the funds.
