Support the Vernon Hills Park District Scholarship Program by signing up for our annual Loop the Lakes 5K Run/Walk. The course winds through picturesque Century Park Arboretum, one of Lake County’s most beautiful community parks. Runners and walkers can enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds of nature as they loop around Big Bear and Little Bear Lakes. This course does have small hills and inclines around the southernmost loop.
