Starved Rock marathon draws good crowd

Posted by wlpo on May 15, 2016

From all indications, the Starved Rock Marathon drew in people to Ottawa from at least an hour away. The News Tribune said hundreds of runners were decked out in fluorescent running gear Saturday.  Most participated in the half-marathon, but a full one, of course, was offered, too.

It appeared a significant number were also first time runners. One experienced marathon runner said the 40 degree temperature at race time was ideal for the 26.2 mile run.
