Crystal Lake Aquathon 2021


We are happy to bring back the Crystal Lake Aquathon for the 4th year! This annual event will be returning to the ideal confines of Three Oaks Recreational Center in Crystal Lake, IL. As the only aquathon in the state of Illinois, this race will offer 3 timed options. All proceeds from the race benefit Girls on the Run of Northwest Illinois!

Timed Races

- Sprint Distance (500m swim, 5k run)
- Olympic Distance (1 mile swim, 10k run)
- 2 Mile Swim

The swim portion takes place in a modified quarry (swim around 3 islands!), and the run is on a combination of trail, sand, and pavement.

We hope to be able to offer the kids race and adaptive race if permitted due to state restrictions.

Kids Run This Town!

Calling all 1st through 5th graders!

Who's looking to... new friends

...have some fun

...take on a challenge

...spend quality time running and making memories with family and friends

...cross the finish line of the Crystal Lake Half Marathon!?

Kids Run This Town is designed to get your elementary schooler outside, in the fresh air and enjoy running! Over the course of 5 weeks, your child will log 12 miles at home with the supervision of Mom or Dad (or anyone who wants to run with them). They will meet up at Smith Physical Therapy and Running Academy for two fun runs - meet the coaches, get to know their peers, engage in fun running activities, and learn some of the basics of running! Then, on September 5th, they will run the final mile of the Crystal Lake Half Marathon and receive their official race medal!
