R.I.P. CDC; Time for Some Rock 'N Roll
As you probably saw on Chicago Athlete's Web site, John Bingham has sold the Chicago Distance Classic half-marathon, and it now will be the Rock 'N Roll Chicago Half-Marathon on Aug. 9, 2009, part of a national series. So we've seen the city's oldest race get stagnant as a 20K, revived as an ever-changing half-marathon, and now it passes to a national management company that promises more music, etc. etc. How about an accurate course?
