What is Race Judicata?

Race Judicata® is a 5K Run/Walk held in Chicago since 1994 that celebrates pro bono work while raising funds for the city's largest volunteer-based legal aid provider, Chicago Volunteer Legal Services. Runners and walkers of all levels participate. It is a huge and fun festival-like event with food, bands, and lots of good legal fellowship. You don’t need to be a runner to enjoy it.  http://cvls.org/judicata

What is the IJA Race Judicata Circuit/Courthouse Award?

The IJA has a great tradition of participating in the race. This year, the IJA Wellness Committee is sparking joy by creating a contest to see which downstate circuit or Cook County courthouse or division can register the most judges [including retireds] from their jurisdiction figured as a percentage of the total judges sitting there.

So if your circuit has 40 judges and 10 register for the Race, your percentage would be 25%, which could be a winner. Unless another circuit or courthouse has only 10 judges and 5 sign up, for a 50% ratio. Cook County will be scored by their districts or divisions, so it is a real horse race. Any circuit/courthouse could win. So get all your brothers and sisters on the bench to sign up now. (See below for sign-up info; you will register as part of the LAP Team)

Prizes to Winning Circuit/Courthouse:

• Certificate from IJA, 
• Bragging rights for the most athletic judges in the state, 
• Picture of the team assembled at Lincoln Park prominently displayed on IJA site,
• $50 gift card to the bakery/restaurant of choice of the relevant Chief Judge/PJ for treats for the judges.
