About This Activity

Please join the Chinese Mutual Aid Association (CMAA) this June 2 at 8AM for the second annual Dim Sum and Then Some: The Uptown 5K! 

Proceeds will directly support Chinese Mutual Aid Association's efforts to provide crucial services to Chicago's immigrant and refugee communities!

This isn’t your typical get a shirt, and go home type of 5K. The Dim Sum & Then Some is the only 5K taking place throughout Uptown and Chicago’s only 5K where registrants are treated with dim sum at the end! We invite runners, joggers, walkers, and crawlers to all join in on the fun!

In 2017, over 400 runners joined for the first ever “Dim Sum & Then Some: The Uptown 5K!” Swarms of runners descended upon one of Chicago’s most ethnically diverse neighborhoods - Uptown. Renowned for its historical theaters, unique music scene and Asian influence, runners traversed through both the streets and Chicago's scenic lakefront. 

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

Highlights

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 (Vegetarian options are available. Dim sum items subject to change)

Other free goodies courtesy of local Uptown businesses
