Rich Heffron, 27, of Chicago, was second in 16:43, and Bob Mathews, 43, of Chicago, shwoing his strength as a masters runner, garnered third in 16:45. Well-known Columba Montes, 31, of Chicago, was the women's champion in 18:13. Shannon Phelan, 22, of Champaign, took second in 18:20, and Maria Cicero, 27, of Elmhurst, grabbed third in 18:51. Nice running on a muggy day.
