Course Map

Please join the Chinese Mutual Aid Association (CMAA) June 1, 2019 at 8AM for the third annual Dim Sum and Then Some: The Uptown 5K!
This isn’t your typical get a shirt, and go home type of race. The Dim Sum & Then Some is the only 5K running through Uptown, and Chicago’s only race where runners (walkers, joggers, and crawlers are welcome!) are treated with dim sum at the end of the route!

In 2018, nearly 700 runners joined us for the second Dim Sum & Then Some: The Uptown 5K! Swarms of runners descended upon one of Chicago’s most ethnically diverse neighborhoods - Uptown. Renowned for its historical theaters, unique music scene and Asian influence, runners traversed through both the streets and Chicago's scenic lakefront. 

And what better way to cap off a run through Uptown than by eating some Dim Sum?! Each runner will receive their own dim sum box compliments of one of Uptown's famous restaurants, Furama (vegetarian options available). Additional free goodies were given on race day!
