Ditka Dash 5K Run

Git yer mouth shut, stretch out your hammies and head over to Soldier Field for the Ditka Dash 5K. Thousands of runners and walkers will receive a mustache, aviator glasses and a shirt that would make Da Coach proud (chewing gum not included). Afterwards, stick around for the post-race "Mustache Bash," which will include live music, cold beer and so many Ditkas you'd think you were in a Saturday Night Live sketch. Entry is $45, with a start time of 9am.
