Over the past several years, the annual Run Thru the Hills 5K/10K event was held on the second Sunday of April in Lake in the Hills.
Poor weather conditions resulted in low attendance the past two years. In an effort to move the event later in hopes of better weather, the village inadvertently scheduled the race for May 5, which conflicts with the Bob Blazier Run For The Arts 5K in Crystal Lake.
To ensure that everyone can attend the Bob Blazier race, the village will be canceling the Run Thru the Hills Cinco De Mile event. The village will evaluate options for 2020 to bring back the Run Thru the Hills event on a day that does not conflict with other local races.
Details will be released at a later time about the return of the Sunset 5K race on Labor Day weekend.
