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 2018, over 650 runners joined for the second 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 the streets and Chicago's scenic lakefront.
And what better way to cap off a run through Uptown than by eating 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!
- The Dim Sum & Then Some is the only 5K race that runs through the neighborhood of Uptown
- Runners who sign up more than a week in advance before the race get a sport-tek t-shirt! (5/24 is the last day)
- Runners will be cheered on with entertainment throughout the race course, including CMAA’s own lion head youth 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
