21st Annual Bob Blazier Run For The Arts

Come join Raue Center for their annual 5K Run For The Arts!

22 years ago, Mike Splitt stood up at a chamber of commerce dinner to announce that the chamber wanted to organize a 5K event in honor of Bob Blazier's unparalleled community accomplishments. Bob was to name a charity of his choice and he chose Raue Center For The Arts.

21 years later, the event continues to grow and build community, just like Bob. For over 50 years, Bob has truly defined what it means to be a community-minded citizen. His dedication and commitment to education, healthcare, and building business is something to be celebrated and admired.


5K RUN The run begins in downtown Crystal Lake, right outside of the beautiful and historical Raue Center For The Arts. The course will take you through the quaint neighborhoods surrounding downtown Crystal Lake and wind you back to finish where you started.

ROSIE'S 1-MILE WALK Don't want to commit to a full 5K, but still want to get active to support the arts? Rosie's 1-Mile Walk was designed just for you. Perfect for a stroll with family, friends, neighbors or anyone who would enjoy a morning walk on a beautiful Sunday morning. Bring the dog, strollers, rollerblades, bikes, wagons, unicycles or just your two feet!
