Sunny Business

During the 2009 Chicago Marathon, it nearly snowed on the city’s half- and full-marathon events. And guess what? The event took place in friggin’ early October.

Our town isn’t having any of that nonsense when the YMCA Half Marathon and Family 5K goes off. The shindig, presented by the Lincoln Family Downtown YMCA, takes place in the beautiful South Mountain Park and Preserve, our own snow-free desert wonderland.

Race-day registration opens at 6:30 a.m. The 5K costs $34, while the half-marathon is $65. Complimentary coffee, bagels, fruit, T-shirts, and goodie bags will be divvied out to participants. Proceeds benefit various programs for inner-city youth.
