Location: Eureka Lake in Eureka, IL
The Annual Eureka “Race with your Heart” is September 21, 2013 at Lake Eureka Park. It is a 10k and 4-mile run or a 2-mile walk. This year we’ve added a 10K race to help runners get those marathon legs ready! The annual race is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Heartline and Heart House. This year we will have the UnityPoint Health Mammovan on site providing breast education to all!
All proceeds aid in the continuation of Heart House providing shelter for those who are homeless and a safe haven for victims of domestic violence. Heart House serves Woodford County and residents from surrounding counties. The shelter receives no government funding and relies on individual and organizational donations, and fundraisers such as this.
Registration starts at 7:00 a.m. and the race begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Eureka Lake Pavilion. Entry fees for the race and walk are $20 per person if postmarked by August 21, 2013 and $25 per person if postmarked after August 21 or on the day of the race.
Participants will receive a uniquely designed tee-shirt, free massages and can sign up for awesome door prizes. A 3D medallion will be awarded to the top five finishers in each running division and a $50 gift certificate and award to overall male and female winners. The race is part of the Lake Run Club and the Illinois Valley Strider Grand Prix Circuit.
Bring the whole family for the free home baked cookies, face painting and an awesome free continental breakfast that adds up to a fun family atmosphere!
