With suburban Cook County now in a level of high community transmission of COVID-19 (Cook County Department of Public Health), School District 54 has made the decision to move the 2021 Run to Read to a virtual format only. Our goal for this race has always been to promote health and fitness. In 2021, that includes a focus on keeping our students and staff, and their families, healthy so that we can continue to keep our students attending school in person.
We hope that you will continue to join us by walking or running 1-mile, 5K, 10K, kids’ sprint, or any distance you prefer during race weekend—Sept. 24-26. For those that have registered already, or do register, we will send a T-shirt and medal to your D54 school and encourage you to wear the T-shirt during your virtual race, take a photo and tag us on social media at #54Run2Read.

All proceeds from this event will go toward our Crisis Fund, which provides immediate financial assistance to struggling School District 54 families.

[09/24/20]   Did you know all proceeds from this year's event is going to the District 54 Education Foundation Crisis Fund to support financially struggling School District 54 families during the pandemic? If you don't want to participate, consider making a donation.

[08/04/20]   The year 2020 has proven to be quite an unpredictable year for all of us. For the past 16 years, the District 54 Run to Read has been a race dedicated to promoting health and wellness for all ages. With that in mind, our 17th annual Run to Read is going virtual. Current state guidelines don't allow for us to gather more than 1,000 people at Dirksen School on Sept. 27.

However, by going virtual, you can still participate in your favorite local race, by running as a family. In addition, all money raised this year will be donated to the D54 Foundation Crisis Fund, to provide food and other necessary supplies to District 54 families who are struggling financially during this pandemic.

As in years past, you can choose from a variety of distances - and because we are virtual we have added some additional events. Our youngest runners can sprint down their sidewalk in a 100-yard dash. Older children can select a 400-yard dash, half-mile run or 1-mile run. Finally, children and adults can sign up for a full 5K (3.1 miles) or 10K (6.2 miles) run. Pick the distance that works for you and map out a route near your home. If walking is more your style, pick a distance and walk it instead.

Another benefit of social distance running is that we are extending the Run to Read from a one-day event to an entire weekend. Run or walk anytime from Sept. 25-27 and submit your time when you're done. And don't forget to take a photo and tag us on social, or use the hashtag #54Run2Read.

Race Results - Run To Read - ITS YOUR RACE

[09/22/19]   With weather in northern Illinois constantly changing, a decision about the Run to Read will not be made until tomorrow morning. We have several events - the kids races at 8 a.m. followed by the 5K at 9 a.m. and the walk at 9:15 a.m. We can run in the rain, but will not run if there is lightening. If we see lightening but clear skies ahead, we may simply delay the event rather than cancel. Any updates will be posted to our website and social media.

If we cancel, all participants will still be able to pick up their race Tshirts at our District Office next week, 524 E. Schaumburg Road in Schaumburg, starting at noon on Monday. Thank you for your understanding and keep your fingers crossed for no rain from 8-10 a.m.
