There are tons of 5K races in Chicago – Bucktown 5K, Oktoberfest 5K, Scarecrow Scramble, just to name a few.
And this October, the Mermaid 5K might be joining the list.
That’s right, we said MERMAID.
The event will be sponsored by Fit Girls Guide. They say if 1,000 people, or mermaids, sign up before August 31, it will happen.
The race would happen on October 1 at 9 am somewhere in Lincoln Park.
The event page says it will feature “actual mermaids, dance parties, bubbles and, of course, glitter,” so in other words, it sounds FABULOUS!

No word if you actually have to run with a mermaid tail but I’d think that would naturally make it harder right?
