Dim Sum & Then Some - The Uptown 5k
This isn’t your typical run, get a shirt, and go home type of race. The Dim Sum & Then Some is the only 5K running through Uptown and Chicago’s only race where runners are treated with dim sum after the run!
In 2017, over 400 runners joined for the first 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 both the streets and Chicago's scenic lakefront.
And what better way to cap off a run through Uptown than by eating some 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!
