About the Event:
This isn’t your typical run, get a shirt, and go home type of race. The Dim Sum & Then Some is the only 5K running through Uptown and Chicago’s only race where runners are treated with dim sum after the run!
In 2017, over 400 runners joined for the first ever Dim Sum & Then Some: The Uptown 5K!
Swarms of runners descended upon one of Chicago’s most ethnically diverse neighborhoods – Uptown. Renowned for its historical theaters, unique music scene and Asian influence, runners traversed through both the streets and Chicago’s scenic lakefront.
And what better way to cap off a run through Uptown than by eating some dim sum?! Each runner last year received their own Dim Sum box compliments of one of Uptown’s famous restaurants, Furama. Additional free goodies were given on race day, including Bubble Tea samples!
*Runners who register before May 14, 2018 will receive a technical running shirt
*Runners will be cheered on with entertainment throughout the race course, including CMAA’s lion dancers
*Every registered runner will receive a dim sum box compliments of Furama restaurant. Vegetarian options are available
(Dim Sum items subject to change)
