Race Info

Leader in the Pilgrim RunThis year we are asking everyone to bring a few canned goods on race day to contribute to our first ever food drive at Pilgrim Run. In partnership with our Hyde Park neighbors at Cornerstones of Care and Central Presbyterian Church, we will have containers at designated parking lots for you to drop off your donations. The food will be delivered to Central Presbyterian on Armour Boulevard, which has operated a food pantry in the neighborhood for nearly 50 years.

The start and finish (both southbound) will be just to the north of the Pilgrim Chapel at 38th Street and Gillham Road.

• The course will take the runners and walkers through Hyde Park, Gillham Park and the Hyde Park neighborhood.

• All 5K participants (runners & walkers) will be chip timed.

• The course has been certified by the USATF.
