|It's a good time to be a half marathon runner.|
But the race is back! It will take place Sept. 9 and is now owned by Junction 311 Endurance Sports with Roadrunner Sports as a presenting sponsor. Plus, they announced that the first 100 registrants would be able to run it for only $50.
As of this evening, there were still spots left at that price.
I have good memories of that race, running it in 1:43 for my second fastest half-marathon in 32 tries. The beer afterward was really good, too. The race starts and I think ends in Grant Park. There's no details of the course on their site.
Still, I'm on the fence whether to run in it again this year or not. I think I want to get through this spring's races before making definite plans for the fall. Still, very tempting and something to think about.
