The race drew families from throughout the suburbs.

"Paul started running with me four years ago, we run every Sunday in the forest preserves," said John Gulliford, 48, of Schaumburg, with his son Paul, 11. "I started running before people were running in the 70s, I ran through college, I've been in eight marathons including Boston."

The race also draws runners of all ages.

"I've been running for fifteen years, last year I won the gold at age 72, this year my bad back is keeping me out," said Carol Skolozynski of Streamwood.

But Skolozynski was on hand to cheer on her son, Mark, of Elgin.

Daniel Robles of Streamwood had the best 5K time at 17:09. Robles runs track at North Central College in Naperville.

Runners were treated to a pancake breakfast in the Recreation Center Gym afterward.
