Twenty-eight years ago, a 5K charity event was born to honor Bob Blazier’s unparalleled community accomplishments. At the time, Bob was working tirelessly with a handful of community champions to reinvigorate downtown Crystal Lake by renovating, reconstructing, and raising the curtain on a new performing arts center. Recognizing the important future role that Raue Center would play for the community, Bob asked that this new 5K race benefit the historic non-profit theater.

Now, in 2024, the race continues to grow and build community, just like Bob. For over 65 years, “Mr. Crystal Lake” has truly defined what it means to be a community-minded citizen. His dedication and commitment to education, healthcare, and building businesses is something to be celebrated and admired.

Once again Bob and Raue Center are keeping it comfy with a 5K/1 Mile “Pajama Run!” Roll out of bed and come down in your favorite PJs, nightshirts, or nightcaps and run for the arts for a chance to win a coveted BOBble Head Trophy!

Early Bird Registration ends April 14, 2024!
