The Grove Express 5K was held on Thanksgiving morning in Downers Grove. Starting on Main Street and ending on Curtiss Street, the race took place throughout Downtown Downers Grove. More than 7,000 community members attended this year’s event, a significant increase from last year’s 5,000 attendees.

In 2021, the Grove Express replaced the Bonfield Express and is now “run” by The Education Foundation of District 58, Roadrunners Soccer Club, and the Downers Grove Rotary Club. Thank you to each of these organizations for keeping the tradition going for the community!
