Race Judicata® 2018 is a 5K Run/Walk, benefiting Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation in our mission to ensure that the law works for everyone. This is the 24th anniversary of the run and we are looking forward to making this year the biggest and best ever!

Online registration closes at 4 PM on September 7th.


Race Judicata® 2018 is not your average 5K. The scenic course loops participants from Avery Field along Lake Michigan and back, where they are greeted by a great band, free beer, wine and snacks.

All proceeds from Race Judicata® go to the general operating costs of CVLS. Join us this year and continue the important work of ensuring that the law works for everyone, not just those who can afford it.

Race Judicata is now on twitter! Just use the #racejudicata hashtag to catch up on the news or to join the conversation yourself.
