GER – Social Distance 10K

2020 GER – Social Distance 10K


We hope everyone is healthy and safe, maintaining appropriate social distance during this devastating Coronavirus pandemic. In order to provide our running community a race opportunity to replace cancelled events and support our local community, Glen Ellyn Runners is sponsoring a virtual race to benefit Northern Illinois Food Bank.

Northern Illinois Food Bank

Northern Illinois Food Bank is a proud member of Feeding America – is the source of nutritious food, innovative feeding programs, and hope for more than half a million people each year. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a goal of solving hunger in our 13-county service area, they rely on donors, volunteers, and community partners – the local food pantries and feeding programs, food manufacturers and retailers, companies, foundations and individuals who join in their vision for no one to be hungry in Northern Illinois.


Register at ( You do not need to be a member of Glen Ellyn Runners to register, though we encourage everyone to join our running family. The registration cost includes a $10.00 minimum donation to Northern Illinois Food Bank. Additional donations are welcome to help serve our community! Please note that an additional charge will be added by SignMeUp as a processing fee.  Registration will close on April 30, 2020 and your T-shirt will be shipped approximately 3 weeks after. 

Run your 10k on your own time, at any time in the month of May. Record your run using your favorite run tracking app (Strava, MapMyRun, Runkeeper, etc.) and send a screenshot of your time to [email protected]. Results will be posted to the Glen Ellyn Runners website in June.
