The Chicago Park District is teaming up with Mayor Lightfoot and the City of Chicago, Jesse Jackson, and Operation Rainbow Push, and Chicago Public Schools to find Chicago's fastest kids. 5th - 8th-grade runners are invited to compete in a 60-meter qualifying competition. Those with the fastest times will advance to the 60-meter semi-qualifier and the final race at the new Track and Field Center at Gately Park on July 10. Every participant will receive a t-shirt and certificate, and awards will be given to those that advance to the semi-qualifier and final races. Special guests will be on hand at many of the events.
