Wauconda Bunny Hop
Join the Fun and Run for the Library!
Saturday, April 7
The Friends of the Wauconda Area Library, in partnership with StarRunners, will sponsor a 4-mile run, and everyone is invited to be a part of the festivities! There will also be a 2-mile fun run/walk for those who want to participate but do not want to run four miles. All proceeds of this family-friendly event will benefit the Friends of the Library.

The Bunny Hop will mark the beginning of a special campaign to help fund some much needed new library services, including a new delivery van, new drive-by book returns at the Island Lake and Volo village halls, and a new self-checkout station in the Children's Services Department.The delivery van will greatly improve access to materials for many patrons throughout the district, including senior centers and homebound residents.
About the Run/Walk
Both the 4-mile and 2-mile courses will start from and end at the library. The 4-mile run begins at 9 a.m. and is a hilly, challenging run around scenic Bangs Lake. The 2-mile fun run/walk around Cook Park and down Main Street begins at 9:10 a.m. The Easter Bunny will be visiting in order to cheer on our runners/walkers and pose for pictures.
The awards ceremony starts at 10:15 a.m. Bunny-shaped trophies will be awarded to the first place overall male and female contestants, as well as the first and second place winners in various age categories. To maintain a fun and creative atmosphere, winners for Best Costume and Best Spectator Sign will also be chosen.
The entry fee for the 4-mile run is $25 and the 2-miles fun run/walk entry fee is $15. Children under 5 can walk for free (unless they want a t-shirt). All paid participants will receive a goody bag containing a list of sponsors and a variety of health-related items. Sign up early, as the first 200 entrants will receive a Bunny Hop t-shirt.
