Race Calendar

Sunday, September 23, 2018
9:00 AM: NAMI Walks/Runs 5K
Distance: 5K
Town: Evanston, IL
(more info)
Location: Clark Street Beach / Centennial Park
Address: 1821 Sheridan Rd
Additional information: Hello,
My name is Natalie Robbins, and I am a part of NAMI Cook County North Suburban, the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, located in Skokie. We are a nonprofit that raises awareness and provides education, advocacy and support group programs at no cost for people in our community living with mental illness and their loved ones. Without NAMI CCNS, more people with mental illness would experience discrimination, end up living on the streets, in prison or in other institutions, and %u2013 at worst %u2013 dying by suicide.
Our annual fundraiser is a 5k walk and run! This year%u2019s walk/run is on Sunday, September 23rd, 2018 at Clark Street Beach in Evanston. It is very accessible to public transportation and there will be plenty of parking. The route follows the lake up and through Northwestern%u2019s campus. We would love for you and your running community to be a part of it! All ages and all levels of walking or running experience are welcome!
We depend on the funds we raise through the walk to support our programs. Participation in our event is crucial for our nonprofit.
I am reaching out to you in hopes that you will help NAMI CCNS by promoting our 5K Walk and 5K Run through your organization since your members and their connections might be interested in this opportunity. It is a wonderful way to get moving as well as give back to the community and a group of people who need your help at the same time.
There are several ways for your organization to get involved. Whether you would like organize a WALK team, set up a table at our walk, or promote the event on your website/social media and to your members, we would appreciate any and all support.
If you are interested in our flyers, please contact the email address listed below. These flyers are accessible and easy to share. The main importance is our link: http://www.namiwalks.org/ccns . This is where you can register a team, walker, runner or supporter. It would be awesome to get a team going! There are prizes, food and lots of fun! Friends, family, and dogs are more than welcome too!
I also have a flyer for a new program, called NAMIMoves, which uses running and walking as a tool to support individuals with a mental health diagnosis. Groups meet weekly at 6pm on Wednesdays at Independence Grove in Libertyville. We would greatly appreciate you letting your members know about this program.
For more information, questions or concerns please feel free to email me back at: natalierobbins.namiccns@gmail.com.
We hope you will join us! Thank you so much for your time, support, and consideration,
Natalie Robbins

We are pumped to return the Litchfield Triathlou Half Distance Triathlon again this year! In 2017 we added the Half and it was a hit! We are excited to return it for an even bigger and better 2nd running!

Now you better believe you will be getting some EPIC 2018 Official Litchfield Triathlou SWAG! By now there are many of you collecting our famous hoodies as they provide comfort, warmth, and style all in one. All Triathlou athletes will get the Triathlou hoodie! Aside from the hoodie we will hook you up with a very memorable finisher medal, post race lunch, free photos, and a race experience you'll never forget! Swimming in Lake Lou Yaeger is the best OWS you will have in the midwest. There really is no comparison to this large beach with pristine flat racing water. The bike course is flat and fast with some great curves to keep you entertained the whole ride. Both the 5k, 10k, and Half runs see very honest mile paces with plenty of flats, and a couple hills throughout. You want freebies, speed, and camaraderie-you better get to the 9th Annual Litchfield Triathlou Triathlons!
