Homecoming Week begins Sept. 22 with a parade. The 5K run/walk is scheduled to begin with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Sept. 28 at the Hickory Creek Barrens located at Schoolhouse Road and Route 30 in New Lenox.

The start and finish line will be right outside of the pavilion. The course will run through the woodlands of The Hickory Creek Barrens with a turn around point at the halfway mark. There will be a water station on the course and refreshments at the finish line, according to Stacy Holland, community relations director for Lincoln-Way High School District 210.
