Over 16 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:

  • Plainfield Fire Protection District
  • CW Avery Family YMCA
  • Edward Foundation
  • Plainfield Interfaith Food Pantry
  • Green Harvest Food Pantry
  • Plainfield Riverfront Foundation
  • Plainfield Emergency Management Agency (PEMA)
  • Friends of the Plainfield Park District

In 2015, we were able to donate $25,000 to the community organizations once again. For over 16 years we have been able to donate just over $320,000 back into our Plainfield community. We could not achieve the success we have had year after year without the support of our many sponsors, runners and walkers, volunteers, numerous city and community organizations and a race committee working hard behind the scenes.

Thank you!
