Over 17 years, the Plainfield Harvest 5K Run/Walk & Kidz Miler has evolved from a small gathering of 250 runners and walkers to an event that is averaging 1,250 PARTICIPANTS a year. The Plainfield Harvest 5K Run/Walk & Kidz Miler is “THE ORIGINAL PLAINFIELD 5K” It is one of the largest races, if not the largest, in Will County and has brought thousands of participants and spectators to Plainfield. Each year, the Plainfield Area Chamber of Commerce donates race proceeds to Plainfield area charities and community organizations, including:
In 2016, we were able to donate $25,000 to the community organizations once again. For over the 17 years of this race we have been able to donate just over $350,000 back into our Plainfield Community. We could not achieve the success we have had year after year without the support of many sponsors, runners, and walkers, volunteers, various city and community organizations and a race committee working heard behind the scenes.
Thank you to our Past 2016 5k Committee!
