Please join us on June 1, 2019 at 8AM for the third annual Dim Sum and Then Some: The Uptown 5K!
Proceeds will directly support the Chinese Mutual Aid Association (CMAA), a community-based 501(c)3 social services agency, in their efforts to provide crucial assistance to low-income immigrants, refugees, and people from all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. This isn’t your typical get a shirt, and go home type of 5K. The Dim Sum & Then Some is the only 5K taking place throughout Uptown and Chicago’s only 5K where registrants are treated with dim sum at the end! We invite runners, joggers, walkers, and crawlers to all join in on the fun!
In 2018, over 650 runners joined for the second ever “Dim Sum & Then Some: The Uptown 5K!” Swarms of runners descended upon one of Chicago’s most ethnically diverse neighborhoods, Uptown. Renowned for its historical theaters, unique music scene and Asian influence, runners traversed through the streets and Chicago’s scenic lakefront.
What better way to cap off a run through Uptown than by eating dim sum?! Each runner will receive their own dim sum box compliments of one of Uptown’s famous restaurants, Furama. Additional free goodies will be given on race day!
