A 'Wacky 5K Run' made its way through the city of Chicago Sunday.Formerly, the event was held on Lower Wacker Drive, where it gets its unusual name.

Runners were not competing for cash or prizes. Instead, once they reached the finish line, they were treated to a buffet of snack foods.

The Wacky Run benefits Chicago's Blind Service Association, which helps the blind and visually impaired.
