Nearly 1,300 participants turned out on a sunny Sunday for the 15th annual Edward Plainfield Harvest 5K Run/Walk & Kidz Miler, according to Plainfield Area Chamber of Commerce board member David Jones.
After the event, Tap House Grill treated participants sponsors and volunteers to lunch during a post-race party.
This year, Edward Plainfield was the sole presenting sponsor of the event, joined by 73 additional sponsors. In the past, proceeds from the event have benefitted the Plainfield Riverfront Foundation, Edward Foundation, Plainfield Emergency Management Agency, Friends of the Plainfield Park District, CW Avery Family YMCA, Green Harvest Food Pantry and Plainfield Interfaith Food Pantry.
According to Jones, organizers are working to determine where this year's donations will go; all donations will be presented at the chamber's member's luncheon in December.
