5k runs in the summer are a fun way to get in shape and spend time with the people you care about. In the busy city of Chicago, simple 5k runs become complicated when it comes to finding affordable and available parking – especially if you’re coming in from the suburbs!
As such, we’re partnering with Night Nation Run to make sure that participants can focus on getting ready for the race. Leave worrying about parking to us! As a bonus, the promo code PARKWHIZ will grant you access to discounted NNR tickets, with $5 off.
Night Nation Run bills itself as the “World’s First Running Music Festival.” The Night Nation Run is a 5K musical voyage where you can run, skip, walk or dance your way through an illuminated racecourse that will take you past multiple on-course DJ stages. Once you’ve completed the 5k, celebrate your finish at the main DJ stage, featuring top EDM DJs and celebrity performers.
Along the race course, you’ll find several DJ stages, selfie stations, interactive light shows, dancers and glow gear giveaways. Don’t worry so much about beating a personal record – this 5k is all about fun.
Most 5ks happen at the crack of dawn, but Night Nation respects your inner night owl. Gates open at 5pm. But if you get your race packet the day before, you can come a little later, at 6:30pm when the first DJ comes on. Dance and let loose before the race starts – it makes for great pre-race stretching! Be among the first few so that you don’t miss giveaways and an interactive light show. The first wave starts at 7:30pm.
