Bronzeville Bustle 5k Run + Walk

  • K.L.E.O. Community Center 119 East Garfield Boulevard Chicago, IL, 60637 United States (map)

The Bronzeville Bustle 5K Run + Walk is an architecture tour and community race, celebrating design and fitness on Chicago’s southside.

The curated route orients runners and rallying spectators with architectural landmarks in the Washington Park and Bronzeville neighborhoods including public schools, community centers, churches, businesses, and housing. The race kicks off at KLEO Community Family Life Center in Washington Park and finishes at Anthony Overton Elementary School in Bronzeville, meandering its way along architectural delights of the neighborhood.

The race culminates in a community design celebration co-hosted by Could Be Architecture and Chicago Mobile Makers in the schoolyard of Overton Elementary—a featured site for ongoing Chicago Architecture Biennial programming curated by Creative Grounds. Join us for a participatory model-making workshop where you can revisit your favorite buildings from the 5K! Post-race refreshments will be served.
