No Frills Fun Run is an annual charitable run that was started in 2012 by two moms in Elmhurst, Illinois. Each year, one local family in need is selected to receive 100% of the proceeds from all the funds raised across various fundraising events, the race registration and a rockin’ after race party with raffle baskets and silent auction items.
The run itself is exactly as its name implies… “no frills”. It’s usually cold (and sometimes snowy!) outside but the incredible hearts of this community’s runners, sponsors and volunteers make this one of the warmest events in town. The race takes place on the Prairie Path with a start and finish at York and the Prairie Path. There is a course option to run a half-marathon as well as a “half-half” distance (6.55 miles). You can also choose to run or walk a mile if that’s more your speed! What matters more than the distance is your participation and support!
