Is this the year you do your first Ridge Run?
Is this the year you beat your personal best time?

The 2020 Ridge Run and Memorial Day Parade are filled with opportunities for personal challenges, fundraising and just plain family fun.
The Beverly Area Planning Association (BAPA) invites runners of all ages, paces and distances to participate in the 43rd Annual Ridge Run on Memorial Day, Mon., May 25. Through Jan. 12, take advantage of discounted registration fees when you sign up online at www.bapa.org.
The Ridge Run, long considered Chicago’s favorite neighborhood race, takes participants through the Ridge Historic District for the 10K run, 5K run and walk and Youth Mile. Cheering spectators line the route, offering encouragement, water and energy to the runners. Races start and finish at Ridge Park, 9625 S. Longwood Dr., where little runners compete in the annual Tot Trot and everyone is invited to the post-race festival.
This year, BAPA will be expanding team sign-up, encouraging people to foster awareness and support for charities, compete for the elementary school Ridge Run trophy, or simply run or walk together as clubs, families or friends.
For the people and groups that prefer marching, the event features the annual Memorial Day Parade honoring the men and women in the U.S. armed forces who have given their lives in service to our country.
The Ridge Run and Memorial Day Parade are supported by sponsors and planned and presented with the help of volunteers. For more information on how you get involved or become a sponsor, contact BAPA, 773-233-3100 or bapa@bapa,org.
