The Chili Chase is a fundraising event, with all proceeds from entry fees donated back to the community via the Chilimania Scholarship & Community Donations Fund. Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities — and their four-legged friends, who are invited to compete to become the official Chilimania 2017 Mascot — are encouraged to participate. New for 2017, you can choose between a 5K or 10K route — registration costs are the same. Back by popular demand, the 2017 Chili Chase will again be chip-timed by Tortoise & Hare Timing Co., who also will handle the online registration process.
