About The Race

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 groups and other locations are not able to schedule a race. The Seminary welcomes everyone back next year so long everything is healthy to do so!

Who We Support

Who We Support

The 5K is organized by the Knights of Columbus Libertyville Council 3674.  The idea is to bring local businesses and participants together to support service work as an annual 5K event.

While 2020’s service trip to Kentucky has been cancelled, our youth will continue to support the parish in Harlan Kentucky, as well as taking on local service projects in Lake County, Illinois. The Knights are looking to help food pantries and multiple service organizations here in Lake County. The help provided all dependent on the total donations raised.
