Update (6/18/2020): As a result of the spread of COVID-19, there will not be a traditional Park 2 Park 5 Miler in 2020.  However, we are pleased to offer the Park 2 Park 5 Miler Virtual Run!  This is an opportunity to take part in a free event hosted by the Lake Run Club.  Participants have until 7:30AM July 4th to complete their free registration.  On July 4th, all registered participants will receive instructions for entering their result.  All participants will be scored and in the results much like a traditional race.

This inter-city race starts on Wood Street near Miller Park in Bloomington, east on Wood Street, then north on Main Street, through downtown Bloomington, turns west on Gregory, then north on the Constitution Trail to The Corn Crib in Normal. View Park to Park Course Map.

The race originated in 1985 as the Intercity 10K. After two years the race was changed to a 5 mile run. For years, the 5 mile run was a little longer than 5 miles. In 1993, the Lake Run club began organizing the event and made the 5 mile course accurate. The race has grown to approximately 500 runners.

Shuttle service is available between the Corn Crib and Miller Park.  Prior to the race, buses will leave the Corn Crib beginning at 5:45 and ending at 6:15.  After the race concludes, buses will leave the Corn Crib up through the Awards Ceremony.
