Update: 36th Annual Heritage Run


Following safety standards put in place by Winnebago County and the Illinois Department of Public Health, in order to stop the spread of COVID-19, Winnebago County CASA will be changing the 36th Annual Heritage Race in to a virtual race.  While some precautions may be lifted by the end of April, our race committee has decided in the interest of safety, to alter the event.  

What is a Virtual Race?
If you’ve never participated in a virtual race before it’s very simple.  Go out and run the distance on your own. It can be last year’s Heritage route, your favorite neighborhood loop, or maybe a new place you’ve always wanted to explore. You pick. Send us a picture, or a video, or some other evidence you completed the course – including a time.  Submit it through the registration site and we will post the results.

Event T-Shirts
As always we will still be doing event t-shirts. This cool looking event swag will still be available for pick up. We will provide packet pickup later 

Why Participate
Many agencies will be struggling over the next few months with canceled events and lack of donations.  Those funds are vital for organizations like CASA to survive. This is a small way you can help. We encourage you to sign up and to let others know how to participate.

How To Sign-Up
If you would still like to sign up, please visit our registration page, skip the run cancellation disclaimer and sign up as normal. If you have any questions please call our office at (815) 319-6880
