On Your Mark, Get Set for 2021.  We are sorry to announce that BAPA’s Ridge Run/Memorial Day Parade and Beverly Hills Cycling Classic have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will really miss being together for these community events and look forward to bringing them back – bigger and better! – next year. BAPA is working on a video version of the Beverly/Morgan Park Home Tour this fall. We’ll keep you posted!  

More than 3,000 athletes from around Chicagoland gather in Beverly/Morgan Park on Memorial Day to compete in BAPA’s annual Ridge Run. The 10K run, 5K run/walk and Youth Mile are hosted by the Beverly Area Planning Association with Little Company of Mary Hospital and Health Care Centers in Evergreen Park the presenting sponsor of the race.

Named one of the Runner’s Choice races by members of the Chicago Area Runner’s Association (CARA) in 2017, BAPA’s Ridge Run is known as one of Chicago’s friendliest races because thousands of Beverly/Morgan Park neighbors line the route, playing motivating music, cheering on the runners and offering water throughout the course.

The Memorial Day Parade follows the last of the Ridge Run racers down Longwood Drive. Find details and participation information below.

The Ridge Run’s three races start and finish at Ridge Park, 9625 S. Longwood Dr., Chicago.

Honoring Our Heroes: Beverly Hills/Morgan Park/Mount Greenwood Memorial Day Parade

2019 Grand Marshal: Tim Noonan and the Chicago Gold Star Mothers Monument Restoration

Memorial Day is dedicated to remembering the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who gave their lives fighting for America’s freedom. Honoring the true meaning of the day, the Beverly Hills/Morgan Park/Mount Greenwood Memorial Day Parade is one of Chicago’s oldest community parades, engaging local organizations, schools and churches, along with representatives of the U.S. military as participants. The parade follows BAPA’s Ridge Run, stepping off from 110th and Longwood Drive at about 10:30 a.m., marching north to Ridge Park. Participants and spectators are encouraged to join BAPA, parade participants, community leaders and families for the Memorial Day ceremony at Ridge Park about 9 a.m.
