2015 Midway Fly Away 5K

2015 Midway Fly Away 5K

Sun Sep 13

The 3rd Annual Midway Fly Away 5k will take place on Sunday, September 13. Run right on the airfield at this unique 3.1 mile event!

Registration includes souvenir race t-shirt and free parking.

Just like last year, the runner who crosses the finish line “midway” will be awarded (2) round-trip Southwest Airlines tickets to fly anywhere in the continental United States. Winner must be at least 18 years of age.  Other great raffle prizes will also be awarded and prizes will be presented to the first place winners.

Fun for the whole family so bring your children to enjoy facepainters and balloon artists!  Souvenir merchandise and refreshments will also be available for purchase.

THERE WILL BE NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION so reserve your spot at the start line and register today. When you register, a fundraising page will automatically be created for you.  Fundraisers raising $250 or more will be entered into a raffle to win 2 tickets on Southwest Airlines.

The event benefits the year round programs enjoyed by 5,000 Special Olympics Chicago athletes.  For more information on getting involved and making a difference, visit www.sochicago.org.
