About the Cinco de Miler

Cinco de Miler is 5 miles of fun! This May, thousands of runners from across the US will join the virtual fiesta by lacing-up their running shoes and hitting the pavement (or trail, treadmill, track, a really long hallway — you get the idea). Whether running or walking, participants will earn killer swag and have a great time along the way!

Cinco de Miler got its start in 2013 and has been bringing joy to Chicago-area runners and beyond ever since. Last year, the event raised over $16,000 for Gilda's Club Chicago and the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund. The official charity of the 2021 Cinco de Miler is St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®. To learn more and to donate, visit our charity page.

Cinco de Miler is produced by RAM Racing, a passionate group of running-enthusiasts determined to create unforgettable race experiences from start to finish line. To learn more, visit the RAM Racing website.
