Spring Marathon/Half Marathon Set to Debut
The ever-changing Chicago running landscape express includes this weekend's first Chicagoland Spring Marathon & Half Marathon in Schaumburg and Busse Woods. Registration remains open for the Sunday races, which begin at 7:15 a.m. in the Schaumburg commercial district. Runners then will head into Busse Woods for some nice scenic racing on a great path familiar to many of us over theyears. Put on by All-Community Events, the new event is presented by Dick Pond Athletics. If you're looking for pacers, the Fast Track Racing Team will be providing them. If you haven't signed up and want to, get on it. Caps are 1,000 for the half and 2,000 for the full. I may update this as I hear about possible race favorites etc. Yes, it's USATF-certified and can be used as a Boston qualifier!
