Join School District 54 in supporting literacy and promoting health and fitness for the young and old by participating in the 17th annual Run to Read. All proceeds for the event will be used to purchase books for classroom libraries. 

Run to Read is a day of races offering something for everyone. The day begins with 100-yard and 400-yard dashes for children. Every child will receive a medal. At 9 a.m. sharp, we will start our 5K run on a USATF-certified course over mostly flat roads (see our map online at There is also a 1-mile fun walk for adults and children alike.

Individuals who prefer to participate in the virtual option can walk or run 1-mile, 5K, 10K, kids’ sprint, or any distance you prefer during race weekend—Sept. 24-26. Wear the T-shirt during your virtual race, take a photo and tag us on social media at #54Run2Read.
