About Bunny Rock Chicago
For the last 6 years, Bunny Rock Chicago has been a family-friendly way to get ready for spring. While competitors are running around in their bunny ears, there will be various activities available for families and kids of all ages; including an Easter egg hunt with over 3,000 candy-filled eggs (ages 2-10), a live petting zoo, and opportunities to get your picture taken with the Easter bunny. The official charity partner of the 2016 Bunny Rock Chicago is Red Door Animal Shelter: a no-kill shelter committed to helping animals in need.
The 5K walk/run will start at 9am on Saturday, March 26th at Montrose Harbor. Runners can register online now or at the day of the race. Registration fee for participants that register before February 29th is $35/runner (Mar. 1-18= $40, Mar. 19-25= $45, race day= $50). Fee includes bunny ears, sunglasses, a dri-fit t-shirt, goody bag, and finisher medal. The race is an officially timed event, using the disposable B-Tag timing system.
