The Biggest Loser RunWalk is back in Racine for a third year on Sunday, Sept. 21. This year’s event has moved from Festival Park to beautiful North Beach, 100 Kewaunee St.
The Biggest Loser RunWalk is a professionally timed half-marathon or 5k for all fitness levels. Dan and Jackie Evans, Season 5 alumni of the hit NBC-TV series, are your hosts. Bobby Saleem from Season 15 is also participating.

The Biggest Loser RunWalk is different than any running event you’ve experienced. You’ll challenge yourself on the course, but you’ll also be inspired along the way. The event includes an opportunity to meet Dan, Jackie and Bobby. After the race, don’t miss finish line entertainment by singer/songwriter Dan Evans and his band.
All participants will receive a finishers medal, a commemorative T-shirt, a drawstring backpack and free downloadable race photos. There will be award divisions for runners and walkers.
