RBC Race for the Kids at Comer Children's

Join us on Sunday, October 15, 2017, for The RBC Race for the Kids at Comer Children’s to fund life-saving research at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital. Register now.

Last year, more than 2,000 participants helped raise over $315,000 to fund research by some of the most talented physicians in the country, allowing us to provide the best possible care for our youngest patients.

The chip-timed, CARA-certified 5K Run/Walk is a highlight of the Chicago running calendar and a wonderful family-focused event for all fitness levels. Children are encouraged to register for the Kids' Dash, a 200 yard race for children ages six and under, or the Kids' Mile, a one-mile, chip-timed race recommended for students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade.
