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!
Each runner will receive a dri-fit technical running shirt if registered by May 21
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)
