December 9th






Join us for a walk, run or crawl around Chicago’s Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood and we’ll liven up your holiday with stations full of spiced wine, apple cider and sugar cookies! Dress up in your ugliest holiday sweater or your best snowman costume for a chance to win some Live Grit prizes.


GRIT AND RUN IT Entry fee: Add an extra dose of holiday spirit by bringing a small unwrapped gift for a teen of the Cook County Office of the Public Guardian as your entry fee into the 5K. Many of the youth in the care of the Office of the Public Guardian won’t receive gifts this holiday season. For more information on the teens of that the Public Guardian's Office serves, go (Don't know what to get a teen? Gift cards are always a great option.)


Where: The run will start and finish at Live Grit (1010 W Monroe) and take you around the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago.


Post-Race Party: Live Grit will host a post race party at the store with food, drink and socializing! You can pre-register for the event to be entered into the event day raffle by completing the online waiver.


See you on the 9th for our 4th annual Grit and Run It!
