Jeff Edmonds's thoughts:

This is a really cheap, really small race. I ran it its first year, so things might have grown and changed since then, however. I believe I received a cotton t-shirt for participating, and I also won a plant for getting 2nd overall. The course is right in the middle of Humboldt Park in Logan Square, and it's completely flat. You do run part of the course twice, but it's a 5K so it's over quickly and you hardly even mind. I don't remember there being any race support or aid stations, and they were pretty understaffed at registration and pick-up. There were some local vendors gathered at the finish area with some samples and stuff they were selling. Once again, this race might have grown and changed since 2010.
