The Malort 5K is back and this time we are taking it to the streets! To celebrate the wonderful mix of running, drinking, and Chicago soccer, the race will commence with a shot of Malort and before you can cross the finish line, you get to down a second shot of Malort! For $35, each runner will have two shots of Malort, a finishing beer provided by Buckledown Brewing, and a commemorative t-shirt to show off your drinking skills to your friends. The race will start at 8AM so wake up on July 28th and get ready to run for Malort!
The first place winner will earn one bottle of Malort and our last place finisher will earn two bottles of Malort! Our course will be on Talman, Addison, California, Irving Park, and Campbell. Sticking to the sidewalks, this will be an out and back, easy course.
Proceeds from this event will support the Chicago Fire October 8th Committee, preserving the history of the Chicago Fire, and the Fire for Food drive benefiting the Chicago Food Depository.
Our partnership with CIBC Fire Pitch and Heineken Pub97 continues with our start and finish lines on the fields at the pitch. After the race, any runners will recieve a 10% discount from their tab at Pub97 so plan to stick around! Packet pickup will be Friday, July 27th from 4-9PM at Pub97. The race will not be officially timed.
Parking is limited so public transportation is recommended. The CIBC Fire Pitch is accessable by the CTA Addison Bus between California and Western.
