The Plainfield North High School Track & Field team would like to invite you to run in our 8th Annual Fast Cat 5k/10k and 1 Mile Kids Run being held on March 30, 2019. While most high school teams sell cookie dough, candy or cheesecakes to raise funds, we’ve taken the approach of doing something that will promote health and fitness in the Plainfield Community, as well as raise money for a local community agency. Fast Cat provides a family friendly activity to participate in, as well as a first-rate road race on a fast course for experienced and novice runners in the Chicagoland area.
Started in 2012, Fast Cat remains Plainfield’s first and only 10k race. Throughout our first five years, we have consistently drawn upwards of 400 runners for our event.
Proceeds from Fast Cat go directly to support the track and field program at PNHS. The track team is entirely self-sufficient and relies on this fundraiser to purchase all equipment, uniforms and warm ups, as well as travel expenses. We are also committed to providing a first-class race experience, so sponsorships are relied upon to help us make this race a winning event.
New this year! Help the Fast Cat support the Winged Foot Foundation by bringing your used running shoes, spikes and gently worn running clothes to donate. Donations will be taken at registration as well as race day.
