Half-Madness -- All Systems Go
The third annual Peapod Half-Madness 13.1 (and a new 6.2 this year) is set for Sunday morning (Sept. 5) at 7 a.m. in far-west suburban Batavia. The "scenic and challenging" course starts and finishes in downtown Batavia, but includes plenty of picturesque running along the Fox River and in surrounding neighborhoods. Put on by the Multisport Madness club, a major player on the triathlon scene, the event has just over 1,100 entered in the half-marathon and about 200 in the 10K. The 10K starts at 7:15. Defending champions from last year's 989 finishers are Lars Juhl of Chicago (1:07:45) and Lisa Phillips of Aurora (1:27:42).
