Soldier Field was jammed Saturday morning, but there wasn't a single Bear on the field.

Instead, it was all about runners. More than 15,000 people took part in the Soldier Field 10 Mile run raising money for the American Cancer Society and SALUTE, INC.

Participants ran through the Bears' tunnel and finished the race on the 50-yard line. Once they finished, participants received a stadium blanket for those cold December Bears games.
