Organizers say they expect 4,500 half-marathoners, 10Kers and junior dashers. May is Brain Tumor awareness month, and the race helps to support The Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute (www.braintumorinstitute.org), the official charity of the race. Runners hail from 32 states across the U.S., plus Brazil, Canada, Japan, Mexico and Spain. ABC7's John Garcia is among the runners.
