The Elgin Symphony Orchestra presents a Virtual 5K: Run with Beethoven! Join the ESO community and run or walk your own 5K starting on Saturday, September 5 through Saturday, September 12. The ESO will provide a suggested route through Elgin for your run/walk, or you can choose your own. We will also provide a Beethoven running playlist on Spotify to listen to while you participate, curated by our own music director, Maestro Andrew Grams. Run or walk the distance anywhere: in your neighborhood or on a treadmill! All levels of participation are welcome. Track your time and compete with others in our Strava club, complete the race on your own time, or just register and collect your t-shirt. However you care to participate, you will be supporting your ESO.
T-shirts will be mailed upon completion of the challenge.
Disclaimer: Please do not run or walk on unsafe roads or areas that have been closed off to the public. Practice social distancing and any other requirements set forth by local, state and federal guidelines. This is a virtual race only. Please do not gather as a crowd.
