Yep, This Week It's the Alpine Half
I am sidelined with a foot injury and will be out of town anyway, but my favorite Chicago-area half-marathon is this Sunday in Lake Zurich. The Alpine Races Half-Marathon features great scenery with the lake, nice neighborhoods, a few hills and a fun atmosphere. Until this year, it was on the CARA Circuit (competitive races for points in each age group), which became the Runers' Choice Series this year. If you want a nice half-marathon experience, head to Lake Zurich. And if you see Pat and Beth Onines, say hello to two of the most decidated running organizers and volunteers in our state.
