Run, Cubs, Run!

Race to Wrigley Cubs

The 2016 World Series Champions Chicago Cubs will host the 12th annual race to Wrigley Charity run, presented by the Club’s Legacy Partner, aTI Physical Therapy, at 8 a.m. Saturday, April 29, at Wrigley Field.

Race participants will again see and experience the Lakeview neighborhood along the course route before entering the concourse through the Budweiser Bleacher Gate on Sheffield Avenue and crossing the nish line steps away from the Wrigley Field Marquee. The ballpark route will feature Wrigley Field tribute statues, newly painted murals and the opportunity to run through the Friendly Confines.

Proceeds from this year’s race will benefit Cubs Charities, which provides increased access to sports opportunities and targets improvements in health, fitness and education for those at risk. Cubs Charities will donate proceeds from personal fundraising to support Advocate Children’s Hospital. The first 100 people to fundraise $500 will get the chance to take a photo with the 2016 World Series trophy inside Wrigley Field so start fundraising today!

All runners will receive an exclusive Race to Wrigley long-sleeve performance shirt, a Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series Champion drawstring bag presented by ATI Physical Therapy and one beverage (budweiser or bud Light product) courtesy of Anheuser-Busch at the post-race celebration. Medals will be awarded to the top male and female finisher in each age category.

Holly's running career began in high school; after being bummed about not making the volleyball team her sophomore year, she decided to join some of her middle school friends on the cross country team. She also did track in the fall, where the 1600 m race was her niche. Since then, she has run several shorter distance races and two half marathons. Her goal for 2017 is to try a triathlon, and eventually do the Chicago Marathon. She graduated from Illinois State University in May 2016 with a degree in journalism. Working at Chicago Athlete, Holly has been able to explore photography a lot more, which is one of her main hobbies. She enjoys taking photos at endurance races, and is also passionate about nature photography and portraiture.
