The Strawberry Moon Twilight 5K, a part of the Heartland Full Moon Series, is one of the rare evening races, scheduled for June 18, starting at 7PM, and finishing before dusk. Athletes are invited to stick around for live music in the library gazebo and a big serving of strawberry shortcake!
Proceeds from the Strawberry Moon Twilight 5K benefit the Friends of Cicero Parks and the strawberry shortcake served afterwards benefits the Friends of the Library. Did I say strawberry shortcake? You betcha! You just ran a 5K, you deserve it!
The full moon that appears in June is called the Strawberry Moon. June’s Full Strawberry Moon got its name because the Algonquin tribes knew it as a signal to gather ripening fruit.
Heartland Endurance Sports would like to celebrate this by bringing you a once in a blue moon 5K race experience. While Heartland Endurance Sports always tries to provide you with a rare, blue-moon-worthy experience at all our races, we have partnered with the Cicero Friends of the Parks to bring you something different with our chip-timed evening run, by arranging to bring you li e Doo Wop music before and after the event, a great running course, awesome shirts and medals and an all around family-friendly event! Proceeds from this event benefit the Cicero Friends of the Park, a 501c3 organization based in Cicero, IN.
All preregistered athletes receive an event t-shirt, finisher’s medal and a collectible race bib; be sure to register early for best price!
After the race, participants were offered strawberry shortcakes and winners of each division of the Strawberry Sprint 5K were sent home with a pint of strawberries.
