Grand Slam

The Grand Slam series is back for 2017!

We had fun with the PACE series the last 2 years, but heard and understand how confusing it was. So the board heard you, and we are happy to announce that for 2017, we will have the Grand Slam Series back.

Penguin in the Park 5k

Whitmore Park Spring Classic 5 Mile, Half Marathon, 18.1 Mile Challenge

Shoreline Classic 5k, 15k

SandCreek Trail Run 4 Mile and 7 Mile

And the Wild Card race will be the Decatur Park District’s Scareport 5k and 10k!

The only qualification is that a participant finish 4 of the 5 races OR run in 3 of the 5 AND volunteer in one of the remaining 2 events (so a total of 4 races either way). It is open to members of the DRC and non-members alike.


We will ask that those attempting to complete the series send a notice of intent later in the year, prior to the completion of the series, so be on the lookout for that. Good luck runners!
