Here's an awesome resolution for the coming year: Start it off on a healthy footing at Chicago's New Year's Day 5K Run & Walk, the city's first official 5K of 2017. Now celebrating its 32nd year, this iconic event is an annual fave with Windy City fitness enthusiasts!

Nearly 1,500 runners and walkers are expected to lace up on the first day of the New Year at the run & walk that starts at the south end of Lincoln Park. The course route winds north along the lakefront bike path to Diversey Harbor before returning to the North Avenue Field House.

A portion of run/walk proceeds will benefit the Central Lakeview Merchants Association, a non-profit neighborhood organization. In addition, there will be a post-event party at a local neighborhood establishment that includes the awarding of winner trophies and raffle prizes. This gathering will also include a complimentary drink to those 21 years of age and older (with ID) as well as non-alcoholic drinks for participants of all ages.
