"Going in Circles" 5K Run / Walk, and 1-Mile Kids Run
In six years at the helm co-directors Corrine Schreiber and Sandi Abrajano have demonstrated an expertise in overcoming unpredictable fall weather to produce a terrific race on the oval of Circle Avenue. Oh... the raw, rainy, wet & windy obstacles we've endured in recent years. Our 2011 edition was never at risk of inclement weather as the running gods lavished plenty of sunshine, no wind, and a crisp but warming circle of blacktop for racing.
A record 175 participants were registered for our 5-Kilometer Run / Walk, which is three laps around "the Circle." Our premier 5K started at 9:00 am sharp. New for 2011 was our 1-Mile Kids run, where 21 of the "younger crowd" were registered to cover one lap of our race course. Our Kids 1-Mile started at 9:30 am. Both races were set off "right on the mark" by official starter Mike Kinsch, President of the Norwood Park Chamber of Commerce.
