_ The 2023 JJK5K:

Don't miss the fun and excitement of the inaugural JJK5K Race June 3 at World Wide Technology Raceway as part of the 2023 NASCAR weekend. This marks the first-ever race named in honor of hometown champion Jackie Joyner Kersee. She has dedicated her life after Olympic competition to supporting the youth of East St. Louis.  Please join us for this incredible opportunity to celebrate her accomplishments, welcome NASCAR back to World Wide Technology Raceway, and enjoy a day of racing! There are two events to choose from -- the 5K run or 1.25 mile walk around the oval track.  Jackie will award the medals herself – this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to run on the track and be photographed crossing the finish line, cheered on by our hometown Olympic champion! It will be a unique experience for a great cause! All activities take place on the same track NASCAR drivers race for the Enjoy Illinois 300 race. Race proceeds benefit the JJK Foundation – a vital part of the Metro East community supporting many youth programs.
