Greater Barrington Chamber of Commerce
The Heron Rookery
Formed in 1994 with 50 Charter members, the Greater Barrington Chamber of Commerce is an active partner in the business community. The Chamber is responsible for many outstanding events such as the Peeper 5K Run/Walk held in May which is a USATF sanctioned race; the annual Golf Tournament held in June, and the Chamber BINGO held in September. The Chamber offers annual scholarship awards to graduating high school seniors of Chamber members. And, each year, the Chamber proudly honors our Citizen of the Year and our Business Leader of the Year at the Annual Dinner held in November.
The race is held the first Saturday of May. Runners gather behind the post office on Mallego Road with walk-in registrations beginning at 8:00 a.m. This USAT&F sanctioned race begins promptly at 9:00 a.m. Parking is located at the Barrington Elementary School. Bicycles, roller blades and dogs are not allowed in the race. Download registration form.
