2017 Dim Sum & Then Some: The Uptown 5k

Thanks for your interest in running in the inaugural Dim Sum & Then Some, the Uptown 5K!

We’re already at our limit of 350 timed runners (with timing chips on the bibs), but registration remains open for runners or walkers who want to participate as a Fun Run, with no timing chips.  You’ll still get to run or walk the race, and get awesome Furama dim sum, along with boba tea shots at the finish line, but you won’t be able to have an “official” time (although we’ll have a clock at the start and finish line) nor a t-shirt.  In any event, you’re also supporting a great non-profit organization that helps immigrants, refugees, and low-income people in the Chicago community.*


Join the Chinese Mutual Aid Association (CMAA) this June for the first ever “Dim Sum & Then Some: The Uptown 5k!”  This isn’t your typical run, get a shirt, and go home type of race. The Dim Sum & Then Some is Uptown’s 5k and Chicago’s only race where runners are treated with Dim Sum after the run! 

Swarms of runners will descend upon one of Chicago’s most ethnically diverse neighborhoods-Uptown.  Renowned for its historical theaters, unique music scene and Asian influence, runners will enjoy a fun route that not only highlights the neighborhood but also Chicago’s scenic lakefront path. 

And what better way to cap off a run through Uptown than by eating some Dim Sum?!  Each runner will be given their own Dim Sum box compliments of one of Uptown's famous restaurants, Furama.  Additional free goodies will be given on race day!

2017 Race Highlights:

Each timed runner will receive a dri-fit technical running shirt

The Dim Sum & Then Some is the only 5k race that runs through the neighborhood of Uptown

Runners will be cheered on with entertainment throughout the race course, including CMAA’s Lion dancers

Every registered runner will receive a dim sum box compliments of Furama restaurant (Dim Sum items subject to change)

Other free goodies courtesy of local Uptown businesses
