Chicago HHH #1453
WALK ACROSS ILLINOIS HASH
Hare(s): 69 Cent Man & Magnetic Muff
Venue: Christina’s Place – 3759 N. Kedzie (corner of Kedzie and Grace, although there’s no street sign at the corner).
This run will promote Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn’s Walk Across IL Program (www.WalkAcrossIllinois.org), in which he hopes to encourage people to walk (or run) for physical fitness. Participants are supposed to log their weekly miles with the goal of accumulating a total of 167 miles (distance across IL from the Mississippi River at Rock Island to Lake Michigan at Chicago, Phase 1) and then an additional 595 miles (distance from the IL-WI border at Winthrop Harbor to Metropolis, Phase 2).
This will be a leisurely hare & hounds fun run of approx. 4 miles. It is totally non-competitive, so runners of all abilities, and walkers, are invited. The trail, which will be set just before the run, will go through the nearby area (which just might take us past the Governor’s Mansion).
