Da Ditka Dash Returns to Soldier Field

True or False: The 1985 Chicago Bears are the greatest team in NFL history? If you answered “false,” the Edens is the fast way out of town.

For everyone else, the  5K returns to Soldier Field Sept. 27 and runner registration has begun!

This year’s dash is poised to be bigger and better than the inaugural dash. Three waves of Ditkas will come together to create a 24,000 Ditka party, complete with staches, shades, and beer.

If cigar breaks and Polish sausage pit stops are easier for you to tackle than a 5K, don’t worry. The Ditka Dash is a “self-timed” event.

Prices jump throughout the summer, so register early!



Date: Sept. 27, 2014

Waves: 8am, 9am, & 10am

Cost: $45 (until May 22), $50 (until July 31), $55 (until Sept. 4), $60 (until Sept. 21)

1410 S Museum Campus Dr, Chicago, IL 60605
