Hats Off to Lake Zurich Half
As I perused the numerous race results from the past weekend, one stood out. It was so great to see that the 32nd Alpine Races Half Marathon was a success. I felt very bad a couple of years ago when this race losts its CARA Circuit status. The Alpine runners, and from my personal experiences, the work done by Pat and Beth Onines, have done a great job over the years. The half-marathon had 251 finishers with Jason Doland, 40, of Inverness, taking individual honors with a 1:15:23.38. Women's winner was Jacqui Aubert, 24, of Crystal Lake, with a 1:30:14.44. An accompanying 5K and kids race completed the package. There were bigger races, but this was one I was glad stuck around.
