C'mon everybody, let's rock! The 16th Annual Elvis Is Alive 5K is a non-competitive race that promises to be more fun than a honeymoon in Vegas. This Thursday evening event takes place on Chicago's lakefront and features an "all-Elvis" start corral. Stick around after the race for a live Elvis musical performance, beer (for for participants age 21 and over) and more.
