About The 5K
First 5 years held at the beautiful, exclusive private grounds at the University of Saint Mary of the Lake (also known as Mundelein Seminary).
It is disappointing that we announce that this summer’s physical DASH AROUND THE LAKE 5K RUN/5K WALK has been cancelled. Out of respect for concerns surrounding coronavirus, the Seminary has closed the campus to large summer groups again this year . The Seminary welcomes everyone back next year when it is healthy to do so!
