Fall Color 5K Fills Arboretum
The Fall Color 5K at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle had 1,780 finishers on Sunday. What a great success on a cool autumn morning. From a quick perusal of the results, some runners were there to tune up for next week's marathon and many others were there to run in a beautiful place and that's it. Jeff Bailey, 25, of Evanston, won it in 15:49, with Jonathan O'Brien, 23, of Downers Grove taking second in 16:57.9, and Jacek Walasik, 28, of Chicago coming in third in 17:26.7. Alissa Hunt, 27, of Chicago, won the women's race in 18:45.8. Runner-up was Magan Baganz, 33, of Naperville, in 19:12.2, and third went to Joanne Singleton, 38, of Chicago, in 20:18.5. Have you ever run at the Morton Arboretum? It is a gem.
