Dim Sum & Then Some: The Uptown 5K | Saturday, 30. May 2020

Now under new event management, please join us Saturday, May 30, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. for the 4th annual dim sum & then some: the uptown 5k!

Additionally, we now have our very first kids dash that will start at 9AM - let's make our race a family affair!

This race offers runners a unique and immersive cultural experience in the “Asia on Argyle” neighborhood of Uptown, Chicago. After a brief Laotian blessing ceremony, traditional Chinese lionhead dancers put on a performance followed by the sound of the gong, marking the official start of the race. At the end of the race, we serve all participants dim sum, bubble tea and other local goodies. Runners are also treated to a block party as people enjoy their food while being entertained by CMAA's youth dance troupes as they perform traditional cultural dances for the crowd!
