ISD Holds First 5K Run And Kids Obstacle Course
The International School at Dundee (ISD) will host its First Annual Around the World 5K Run and Kids Obstacle Course on Saturday, Sept. 26, starting at 9 a.m. The event, which will be held rain or shine, is open to the public with all proceeds benefitting PTA-sponsored curriculum enhancements. Pre-registration is available at tinyurl.com/isd5k.
The 5K Race starts and ends at ISD, with a gentle course, which winds through residential streets surrounding the school at 55 Florence Road in Riverside. Two water stations will be provided for runners along the course, and all pre-registrants will receive a race t-shirt. Medals will be given to top three finishers in each of six age groups. Registration for the 5K is $20 through Sept. 4 and $25 after Sept. 5. Race day registration is $30 per person.
A fun obstacle course, for kids 13 and under, will be set-up on the ISD playground. Age and grade-level loops will be offered for kids, with obstacles including hurdles, tires, climbing wall, hay bales and more. Kids Obstacle Course registration is $12 through Sept. 4 and $15 after Sept. 5. All kids will receive a finisher’s prize.
“We hope that everyone will come out to support ISD’s First Annual 5k Around the World Fun Run and Kids Obstacle Course!” said Kristin Lisjak, event chair, and PTA co-president. “ISD is a multi-national community, with many countries represented among our student body. This multi-cultural orientation will be reflected in fun ways at the event.”
