If you wanted to try out that new Spandex running suit at the Ravenswood Run, then you’re out of luck. This year’s annual 5k run has sold out, and more than 3,000 runners are expected to show up and stretch their Achilles tendons at Sunday’s event. The race kicks off at 8 a.m. and begins and ends at?4550 N. Hermitage Ave. If you plan on watching the race, you might want to bring an umbrella, because rain is expected throughout the day. But that won’t stop the race.
“The event takes place rain or shine,” said Samantha Morales, marketing manager for Fleet Feet Sports, which helps organize the Ravenswood Run. Morales said if dangerous weather occurs, then an announcement will be made on the day of the race.
All proceeds from the event go to the Ravenswood Community Services’s food pantry and the student health centers at Lake View and Amundsen high schools.
