ORD 9/21/08 - Ever Want to Run on a Runway?

How cool is this? It is your chance to run a 5K on the new ORD 7,500 ft runway scheduled to open later this year. It is bound to be good for setting a PR, since I cannot imagine a much flatter course!

I wish I could do it, but will be doing a long training run for the upcoming Chicago marathon that day. I would expect limited capacity, so you might want to act quickly if you are interested.

That's awesome. If I wouldn't get bent over changing my YUL-LGA trip that day to YUL-ORD-LGA, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

I'm signed up - should be an interesting experience! Is anyone else going to run?

If you're planning to do it, sign up soon. There are only 5,000 spots.
