Countdown to Race Day

The Grove Express 5K

The Grove Express Foundation invites the public to participate in the 2022 Grove Express 5K Run/Walk to benefit education and youth programs.

In 2021, three local organizations partnered together to carry forward the important tradition of a Thanksgiving Day Run/Walk — a staple for so many families around Downers Grove. Representatives from the Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58, Downers Club Rotary Club, and the Roadrunners Soccer Club formed the Grove Express Foundation to uphold the mission of investing in education, youth programs, and scholarships in our community.

The Course

The Grove Express 5K winds its way through the heart of downtown Downers Grove on a USA Track and Field certified course.
