Not your average race, the EXACT Yorkville Run is a luxurious experience providing its runners with high-end race kits, customized finisher medals, and a post-race VIP reception at the Jesse Ketchum courtyard. Needless to say, it’s a fantastic way to help raise critical funds for important charities. Over the past 9 years, they’ve fundraised over $1.7 million and the goal for this year is $1,000,000!
