**VIRTUAL or IN-PERSON Nighttime 5K Run/Walk**
The race is on! The Scarecrow Scramble will be structured a bit different this year to comply with all health guidelines. But we are very excited to share with you what we have in store! Please take the time to read through our detailed RACE GUIDELINES & PROCEDURES to better understand how the race will look this year: http://lislepartnersforparks.org/pdfs/2020ScarecrowScramble-Guidelines&Procedures.pdf
Our goal is to give you, the runners and walkers competing in our event, a competitive racing experience in compliance with all CDC social distancing and health safety guidelines. You also have the option of signing up for the Virtual 5K and running in the safety of your own neighborhood.
Register today and run or walk to help us provide recreation scholarships to low-income families who do not have the means to participate in recreation activities, and the Lisle Teens with Character Program.

Our intent is to host a physical race, but race officials maintain the right to cancel the event due to severe weather conditions or if we move back to Phase 3 due to COVID-19. If the race gets cancelled, you have the option to run the race virtually instead (see details below). You will still receive your race bag and shirt. No refunds will be given.
