ABA TECHSHOW will feature its first-ever 5K run/walk on Friday, March 17th, departing from the lobby of the Chicago Hilton and passing some of Chicago’s most famous sites on the lakefront. The event is co-sponsored by Rocket Matter and Ruby Receptionists, two leading legal technology companies committed to fitness.
Participants will get a free headband commemorating this historic event. To reserve your spot for the event, click here.
Don’t be intimidated, either! If you’ve never ran a 5K, join us and walk the event, or challenge yourself to complete the run by following a “Couch to 5K” program (this one has a four week timetable).
A 5K is a terrific distance for new and experienced runners alike. A 3.1-mile distance, the race can be finished by walkers in under an hour, joggers in 35-40 minutes, and runners in 30 minutes or less. Furthermore, many local charities in your community host 5K events, so by participating in them a portion of your race fee goes to the needy.
Once you complete a 5K, you can set new goals: Improve your time or shoot for longer distances. So why not start your journey by completing your first 5K with your TECHSHOW peers?
The TECHSHOW planning board this year is focusing on health and wellness. They willl feature yoga classes, too. So if you’re traveling to the show this year, bring some workout clothes!
