DeKalb Corn Classic 10K/5K Training Sessions

Recently you have seen our promotion of the upcoming DeKalb Corn Classic 10K/5K race taking place across DeKalb and the NIU campus on Sunday,
Sept. 25. We would like to invite you to join us as a volunteer or participant in this fun community experience. In preparation for this event and in keeping with our efforts to promote well-being at NIU, we are partnering with Glen Kamps of Dick Pond Athletics in St. Charles, Illinois to offer a free 10-week supervised training program to all staff, faculty, family members and the surrounding communities. Supervised and led by Glen, the Walk2Run program will guide you as you increase your running potential and prepare to fully participate in and run the Sept. 25 event. Through the 10-week program Glen will offer in-person and email instruction, guidance and support. Beginning Wednesday, July 13, at 5 p.m. we will meet in front of Founders Memorial Library where Glen will guide us through a 30-minute training session. We will then meet for the next nine Wednesday evenings at 5 p.m. leading out to the Sept. 25 event.

If you are interested in joining us beginning July 13 or have any questions, please reach out to Karen Smith at
