JETAA Chicago Virtual 3K Walk/5K Run!

Updated: Sep 16, 2021

Join JETAA Chicago for our FIRST virtual 3K walk/5K run! In the spirit of Sports Day, (which is typically held in October in Japan) let's promote an active lifestyle and focus on our physical health together this fall! Complete the distance on your own or with family/friends anytime before October 11th, and share your pictures via Instagram with the hashtags #JETSetGo! and #JETAA5K. Tickets are free with the option to purchase a custom-designed JETAA Chicago t-shirt (details to come soon).

First, join our pre-run training event on September 28th for the chance to listen to Coach Lori from Chicago Endurance Sports! Lori is a veteran runner of all distances and will share her knowledge and love of the sport of running. We will discuss tips, tricks and best practices to run your best race — for beginners and veteran runners alike!

Finally, celebrate your run and learn some facts about Sports Day in Japan at our post-run Happy Hour on October 11th! We'll also be giving away a gift certificate to Fleet Feet (ships nationwide) so you can stock up on your favorite gear for your next race.

Sign up here!

*Please note that you do not need to report your run time unless you want to share it, so please just walk/run the distance at your own pace and feel free to complete the distance in separate smaller installments if that is best for you. :)

**This event is open to JET alumni and Friends/Family of JET
