Registration is at www.mchumanrace.org. This year’s Human Race takes place April 27, 2014 in McHenry’s corporate park. Over 1,000 racers are expected to participate. 

The 5K walk/run allows race participants to designate which participating organization will receive the proceeds of their race registration fee and any fundraising they do.

Registration fee for racers until March 31 is $30, with 10 and under $15. The registration fee increases April 1 to $35. Registration is at www.mchumanrace.org. 

Volunteer Center Mchenry County, host of the Human Race, provides $2,400.00 in prize money for agencies including: the $600 McHenry County Community Foundation Award to the organization with the most runners and walkers, the $400 Illinois State Bank Award to the top fundraising organization, and the Coviden Award to the top fundraising individual (award money goes to the organization of the individual’s choice). 

The Human Race, a 5K walk/run, organized by Volunteer Center McHenry County, is an annual event that raises money to benefit local charities and promote volunteerism. In its first three years the race has raised $222,000 and helped over 60 organizations.
