Registration for the Inaugural Elmhurst Twilight Mile is Open!

On June 8, area runners can race The Mile around Elmhurst University, immediately after State Championship bike racing ends.

Registration is open for the inaugural Elmhurst Twilight Mile on June 8, 2024. The course runs clockwise on the perimeter streets of Elmhurst University, and will finish in front of the crowds at the Wilder Mansion on Prospect. The entry fee is $20, and will be open until June 3 at 5 pm. After June 3, the registration fee increases to $30.

The Elmhurst Twilight Mile is an opportunity for runners to go for a PR in the mile on a fun exciting course, and some of the area’s faster runners will go for the $2,000 in prize money up for grabs. The Elmhurst Twilight Mile is sponsored by Hinsdale Orthopedics surgeons Dr. Alex Tauchen, a hip and knee replacement specialist, and Dr. Ronak Patel, a sports medicine specialist and co-owner of Ortholazer. They understand the impact running and training can have on the body, and they want to help athletes heal and get back to their passion.

Race-day registration is available, but pre-registered racers who pick up their bib packets at Ortholazer in Oakbrook will be entered in raffles for one of five $20 prizes (your race fee)! There is also a raffle for a complimentary consultation and an injury treatment course worth $450 that can be used with friends or family.
