4/24 Race to Wrigley

RACE.JPGMore than 8,300 runners packed under the Wrigley Field marquee on the corner of Clark and Addison streets as part of the 5th Annual Race to Wrigley Saturday. The record number of runners helped raise more than $150,000 to benefit Chicago Cubs Charities and Children’s Memorial Hospital. Ernie Banks served as the official race starter.

The course route began under the marquee and led runners through the Lakeview neighborhood and inside the ballpark’s concourse before finishing at the corner of Clark and Addison. Lars Juhl won in 15 minutes 25 seconds, while Christine Anderson claimed the top female time at 18:17.
