2009 "Going in Circles" 5K Run / Walk
Two days before our
annual "Going in Circles" 5K Run / Walk a cold front moved over Chicago, bringing with it persistent rain. On race morning the rain was still sputtering and slippery, wet leaves littered the pavement of Circle Avenue - our race course. About
intrepid Chicagoland runners and walkers toed the line to challenge the elements in a three lap tour of Circle Avenue.
This event is a
labor of love
directed by Corrine Schrieber, Sandi Abrajano, Mike Kinsch, and Ellen Wierzewski along with their team of first class volunteers which benefits the Norwood Park Train Station Foundation and Breast Cancer Foundation. The course is unique in its layout which loops three times around the oval of Circle Avenue in Norwood Park... it's quite spectator friendly and certified by
USA Track and Field
