You guys know that I love to feature opportunities to serve the community, so when this race came along, I knew I had to tell you about it! Erin over at Loop Looks is the marketing director for the race, so she sent me some good information to share with you.
First, the race is hosted by the Oak Park Runners Club and benefits the Collaboration for Early Childhood, which supports pre-kindergarten children as they learn and develop. How could you not support that?
Next, the race includes men’s and women’s starts, as well as a walk and a youth race. Know what that means? Something for everyone.
Ready for the deets?
