The Rockford City Market will kick off its 10th season with a new 5K event.
The Market is teaming up with The Runner’s Image for the new “Race to the Market 5K” race.
The run will take place on June 7th and will start at the City Market Pavilion. There will also be a free, quarter-mile “fun run” for kids, across the State Street Bridge.
Organizers say they’re excited about the upcoming season.
“On one hand, it’s kind of hard to believe it’s been 10 years, but on the other hand, it feels like it’s been forever,” said Rock River Development Partnership Executive Director Cathy McDermott. “But, we’re just thrilled that we’re hitting this milestone and that we are, hopefully, still creating a great event.”
The Rockford City Market is also asking for the public’s help to design a ten-year anniversary t-shirt. The winning design will be featured on the market’s 2019 t-shirts and hoodies. Submitted designs must be centered around the market and feature the Rockford City Market name or logo.
Submissions must be sent via email by Thursday, May 2nd.
