"From Pooh to Who" was the theme of the 10th annual Dewey Dash Race, which was held Sunday to benefit the Town and Country Public Library in Elburn.

Top finishers in the 5K included Joe Russo of Elgin, Dave Ginsberg of Geneva, James Sobucki III of Elburn, Ray Heriaud of Sheridan, Mallory Sanzeri of Carol Stream, Laura Herra of Elburn, Susan Brinkworth of Elburn, and Kendra Sterkel of Maple Park, according to racetime.info, a race results website.

The race, which allows participants to dress in theme costume if they like, features a 5K race and a one-mile run/walk.

Some of the race's perks include T-shirts, goody bags, and a generous spread of food post-race.
