It is hard to find 10k's sometimes - I would totally be interested in that Winthrop Harbor one - far away still though, so I will wait a while before looking further into it. Always love a race that is a fundraiser though - sounds like a great organization.
I grew up in Deerfield :)

There is a great fund raiser 5K and 10K on Sept 24 in Winthrop Harbor. www.sseeo.org info here. My friend is organizing this for stroke awareness. She is in her 50's and in great health, had a stroke. She has recovered so much that she is back to running again.
I live in SE WI, but work in Deerfield. I was looking for 5K in the SE WI area and was looking at the one in Lake Geneva coming up an a trial run in Franklin WI.
i love that 4 miler we do in highland park - i have done that one for the last 4 years i think - beautiful course, good range of options for different runners/ walkers, great after ceremony and goodies!
OMG, Dani! My daughter & I were considering the Bigfoot, but.........we're so weak in swimming we're thinking of putting it off til next year. The turkey trot we ran last Thanksgiving was in Highland Park & was a good race.....cool & drizzly, but nice.
Anybody in Chicago area/NW suburbs planning particular races this year? So far, daughter & I will be doing the Terrapin 5K July 28, 6:30 in Chicago at Soldier Field & a Turkey Trot again. Will probably be running the Woodstock Challenge with a friend in June.
