Run/Walk Details

Join us for our 12th annual Heat the Streets Run and Walk for Warmth - Saturday, March 2.

What is it?

Heat the Streets Run & Walk for Warmth is a timed 5K and untimed, family-friendly walk.


Why do we do it?

Proceeds from the run and walk go to local energy assistance programs to help seniors, people with disabilities and low-income families pay their utility bills. The event is held in the cold winter months to bring attention to those who struggle to keep the lights on and heat their homes.


What are the details?

The 2019 event will be at Stinson Park in Aksarben Village. (See map below.)

Early packet pick-up will be Friday, March 1 from 12-7 p.m. at Backwoods (2289 S. 67th St.).

Race day check-in and registration will be from 7:30-8:45 a.m.

The 5K will begin at 9 a.m. with the walk to immediately follow. You can view the 5K route here and the walk route here.
