Downers Grove 10-miler to Sparks, West

The Downers Grove 10-miler, two laps on the hilly 5-mile course instead of one for the Circuit race, produced some nice running in humid, sweaty conditions on Sunday. The 10-miler, which is the original in this longstanding event, was won by Connor Sparks, 22, of Geneva, in 56:11. It was fairly close as Eric Hofman, 23, of Homewood came in second just 10 seconds back at 56:21. Third went to Jim Milner, 26, of Palatine, who was across the line in 56:43. Kristin West, 31, of Downers Grove, was the women's 10-mile winner in 1:08:47. Noriko Valentin, 49, if Indianhead Park, was second in 1:13:12, and Maureen Wilkey, 26, of Chicago, was third in 1:13:25. The results are a bit in need of fine-tuning at the moment, but it appears there were about 160 finishers, give or take a few. By request, here are the Downers Grove results:
